chef will be remembered.

DAVIDE OLDANI (Chef)"Art and artisan have the same roots. Pasta is an artisanal form of art. It’s the art of fine taste, something that changes depending on the ingredients we put on the plate."
AMANDINE CHAIGNOT (Chef)"I see pasta as a canvas that each chef can use in many ways. It’s an ingredient you can use to express different things, it gives you such freedom!"
Her creativity is rooted in the talent instilled by the French chefs she rubbed shoulders with, like Ducasse, Alléno and Fréchon. Bocuse de Bronze in 2012, she's very involved in charity through her work with the NGO World vision and she will open soon her new restaurant “Pouliche”.
SIMONE ZANONI (Chef)"For me, the art of pasta is about the ability to enhance and transform what is basically a social, everyday item into something artistic."
PAOLA NAVONE (Designer)"Pasta is a beautiful example of democratic design. Simple, natural, universal. I think it's a magnificent "creative medium”: it can make anyone feel a little bit like an artist."
ASHLEY ALEXANDER (Food photographer)"Like art, pasta can not only evoke emotion and inspiration in the moment but can spark and inspire further creativity and future work."
