Massimo Bottura: "This is my World"

Massimo Bottura, Italy’s top-rated chef owner of Osteria Francescana restaurant, takes Fine Dining Lovers on a personal, emotional and multi-sensorial tour of people and tastes that inspire his work.

He describes his cooking philosophy as «territorial cuisine seen from a distance of ten kilometers». He mixes tradition, familiar ingredients and experimentation in unexpected combinations: Fine Dining Lovers meets Massimo Bottura, chef at the Osteria Francescana restaurant in Modena, for an exclusive interview.

Together with the two Michelin star chef, we meet artists from the transavantgarde movement, a cherry farmer who has brought an almost-extinct flavour back to life, and taste-keepers of Parmigiano Reggiano cheese.

We also get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the Osteria Francescana and the energetic staff that keeps Bottura young at heart.
