GIULIA AND ANDREA’ S CUISINE
We are Giulia Maria and Andrea, both from Tuscany, respectively born in 1993 and 1990, two simple persons but with big ambitions. We have started cooking after high school: I Giulia have chosen the cooking and Andrea pastry-making. We arrived at Mirtillo Rosso as apprentices and we fell in love with the project! A job with a young and creative staff that has given us the opportunity to improve our skills and become respectively Executive Chef and Pastry Chef. We looked for special teachers, such as Paola Naggi, owner of the restaurant “Impero” in the town of Sizzano and Elide Cordero, starred Chef of the restaurant “Il Centro” in the town of Priocca. We studied and worked for them during the closing months of Mirtillo Rosso. Why? To create our mountain and Piedmontese cuisine, by discovering and using local produce. I, Giulia, love the “bollito” the boiled meat, the “plin” ravioli and the “carpione”. Piedmontese cuisine gives us the opportunity to express territoriality that we have learned and appreciated, despite our origins.
We put much care when cooking for the children: we use just a little salt, genuine produces, first quality meat and fish. Our guests say that our pastries are mouth-watering: from the Piedmontese bunet to the pastries we make every month, on the 25th, like the “panettone” with mascarpone cream, the Christmas “tronchetto” and the Mont Blanc.
