Michelin-starred chef Massimo Bottura has kicked off the Identità Expo S.Pellegrino Restaurant at Expo Milan 2015.  The chef of Osteria Francescana, along with Identità Golose and S.Pellegrino, is leading the gourmet movement at the international event where more than 200 Italian and foreign chefs will devote the next six months to the cause of haute cuisine, experimentation and reflection on the food. 

Bottura has designed a special menu for the event, consisting of zero waste dishes drenched, as always, in art and Emilian cooking tradition: in this exclusive video we show you some moments of this debut, what's happening at Expo Milano 2015 and a peek inside in the kitchen with Bottura and his brigade. We asked the chef to tell us a little bit about the inspiration behind his dishes and special dessert for the Expo called Bread is Gold. He also filled us in on what he hopes this great international event will accomplish.
