Renowned Italian chef Gualtiero Marchesi is considered by most to be the founder of modern Italian cuisine created.
In 1985, Marchesi made history when he became the first Italian chef and non-Frenchman to receive three Michelin stars.
Over the years Chef Marchesi has created three signature dishes:
- Riso, Oro e Zafferano (Gilded Rice with Saffron): A creamy rice dish with his signature 14-carte gold paper square in the middle of the dish.
- Seppia al Nero (Spaghetti with Ink Squid)
- Il Raviolo Aperto (Spinach and Ricotta Raviolis): An open ravioli filled with spinach and scallops.
To pair with and complement these dishes Chef Marchesi created three wines named after his famous dishes:
- L’Oro – A White Wine
- IL Nero – A Red Wine
- L’Aperto – A Rose’ Wine
