FOOD AND DRINK – ITALIANS DO IT BETTER
Massimo Bottura takes inspiration from contemporary art to create highly innovative dishes that play with Italian culinary traditions.
This film explores Bottura’s philosophy and celebrates the launch of his first book, Never Trust A Skinny Italian Chef.
“My bones are made of Parmigiano Reggiano, and balsamic vinegar rushes through my veins. This is my story and my kitchen.” he says – Yet, he does not let the old rules define him. He considers recipes to be “living” documents which need refreshing just as much as the human mind.
Illustrated with specially commissioned color photography by contemporary artists Stefano Graziani and Carlo Benvenuto, and featuring a conversation between Bottura and artist Maurizio Cattelan, Never Trust a Skinny Italian Chef will delight and inspire chefs, Italian food lovers, and fans of creative cuisine alike.
