Ugo Alciati is the heir of a family that has written the history of Italian cuisine.
He started working at the age of 15 and he never stopped since then.
Seasonal menus, essential menus, highest quality raw materials and the promotion of local excellence have always been Alciati’s winning features.
His philosophy: to understand the nature of the ingredients, to respect the hard work of those who grow and produce them, to learn from their own land, it’s always better to remove than adding, less is more.
The chef, in 2018, was appointed Chef Ambassador of the Italian Truffle in the World for the Piedmont Region by the Accademia Italiana del Tartufo.
