Gaetano Trovato
A Maestro of Italian Haute Cuisine

Born in Sicily, Gaetano Trovato, at the age of six, moved with his large family of 6 brothers and sisters to Colle di Val d'Elsa.
Gaetano's career begins with the poorest but symbolic food ever: the bread, by starting to work in a bakery in the old town of Colle di Val d'Elsa.
A few years later, Gaetano went off the province of Siena; he started working in Rimini, Turin and Switzerland.

The Essential Beauty

The Chef's interest is not limited to the world of haute cuisine but it spreads to that of art and architecture; more simply Gaetano Trovato's passion concerns everything that contains geometry and essential beauty.

"My dishes are always born, are first created, are first brought to life in a notebook: I usually draw them first, as if they were real projections of architecture"
