For years, Fulvio Pierangelini has been considered by many critics as one of the most important chef in Italy and worldwide. During his studies in political science he worked in hotels where he learned the basics of classic cuisine. After graduating, he opened his own restaurant "Il Gambero Rosso" in a small town in the middle of nowhere, with the kitchen windows facing the sea – his other great passion !
The Gambero Rosso has always been highly rated within the rankings of many guides, including "The World's 50 Best Restaurants". With his style of cooking, his intuition, his seeming naivety, his careful use of materials and ingredients in creative, unique and yet simple ways, Fulvio was fundamental in the evolution of Italian cuisine, spreading his thoughts, ideas and creativity at some of the most important meetings and workshops within the sector.
At the height of his success, Fulvio unexpectedly closed "Il Gambero Rosso". Today, he travels the world as the creative director for the famous hotel chain Rocco Forte Hotels.
