The chef

Growing up in a big Italian family, it was Mirko’s mother and grandmother who gave him his passion for cooking. He then took the first big step towards his future career as a chef and, in 2008, left Italy for the USA.

Every single day has brought new experiences helping him progress, but the most relevant were undoubtedly the time he spent working with Roberto Donna, Chef Enrico Zanirato; and working with Alfredo Russo where he discovered the importance of balancing tradition and innovation.

His philosophy is to work around simple elements, rediscovering the purity of flavour of the individual ingredients in a world where the simplicity of flavours has all but been lost.
