Chef Andrea Aprea** – Andrea Aprea Ristorante

Andrea Aprea brings to the table his pursuit of balance between tradition and modernity.
Born in Naples in 1977, after years of training spent in some of the most important kitchens in Italy, Asia and Great Britain, he has chosen to develop his own personal poetic journey by defining a new sense of the relationship between food and the experience of the senses. Aprea’s cuisine sets out to trigger a process of exchange between the different locations of the experience: the memory, the sight, the sense of smell, the palate. Now giving prevalence to one, then pandering to the needs of the other.
The only end is the delivery of a new form of perceptive truth: between flavors of yesterday and the intensity of today. A twenty-year professional path, which does not look for fathers or traditions to which to belong, along which Aprea has built his personal approach to the table until obtaining, in 2012, the first Michelin Star at Vun Andrea Aprea Park Hyatt Milan – the first hotel restaurant to receive a Michelin star in the history of Milan. The second Star will arrive five years later, in 2017. Today, he is Chef Patron of the new restaurant “Andrea Aprea” located on the top floor of the Fondazione Luigi Rovati, at 52 Corso Venezia in Milan, which received two Michelin stars two years after its opening, in a beautiful period building with a secret green courtyard. This opening marks the start of the entrepreneurial project of Aprea that returns to its audience to continue a research path and define in one place a holistic approach that looks at the total quality of the experience.
