Antonia Klugmann is a chef who is making big moves at her L'Argine a Vencó restaurant in the North of Italy – this year the chef has been talked about a lot within her home country and she's now taking her message and cuisine to the international arena.

Klugmann’s restaurant is situated in a unique area, which is something she talks about in her speech below made at Food on The Edge.
