Italian Chef Stefano Ghielmetti discovered his passion for food aged nine. Currently, Sous Chef at Bread Street Kitchen by Gordon Ramsay, Atlantis The Palm, he shares his tips for serving authentic Italian cuisine.
Simplicity is key: Italian cuisine is really simple and based on quality ingredients. It’s also important to understand the processes and the origins of the cuisine.
Al dente is important: In Italy, we are very picky. Pasta has to be al dente, with real bite, so you could almost break your teeth on it! Pasta is also more digestible if it isn’t overcooked.
Signature dishes: Crab ravioli and risotto.
