Valerio, an Italian young entrepreneur (28), trained as a chef in Rome is the executive chef at IL Mattarello. Valerio has always been fascinated by food culture and the art of merging few, simple ingredients to make delicious dishes. His Italian roots drive him every day: the marine air he has been breathing, the warm and soft wind making everything smoother and the warmth of the sun that makes any food presented delicious… Growing up in such a context, his taste and sight became quite hard to please. Indeed, his never-ending research is on new ways to merge ingredients, because of their chemical relationship, colours and flavours, to make people satisfied and happier.
