Our Chef 2020: Massimo Bottura
“The beauty of High Gastronomy lies in a mix of influences at the crossroads of different cultures.”
While celebrating Bordeaux wines, BurdiGala also aims at breaking the boundaries and showing the best of what the world has to offer. After the French chefs Alain Ducasse, Hélène Darroze and Sylvestre Wahid, for the very first time, BurdiGala 2020 is proud to announce the takeover of the kitchen by one of the greatest modern and timeless chefs from Italy: Massimo Bottura.
Recently named by TIME Magazine as one of the most influential people of 2019, Massimo Bottura has been an innovator and restaurateur for over twenty years. He has consolidated his reputation as one of the world’s most creative culinary figures and his internationally renowned three Michelin star restaurant, Osteria Francescana, was named number 1 on the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list in 2016 and for the second time in 2018.
Bottura’s kitchen walks a thin line between tradition and innovation. His dishes explore the deep roots of the Italian kitchen while making references to history, art, and philosophy.
In 2016, he founded the non-profit association Food for Soul to empower communities to fight against food waste in the interest of social inclusion and individual wellbeing.
