Questions For Massimo Bottura

August 30, 2016

Hi friends! Later this week I will travel to Berlin to meet Massimo Bottura, Italian restaurateur and the chef patron of Osteria Francescana, a three-Michelin-star restaurant based in Modena, Italy that was just named THE best restaurant in the world. I’m very excited to attend his #RespectFood event and have a chance to interview him for decor8 – so to all of you out there who love food and his work, do you have any specific questions that you’d like for me to ask him and I will do my best to share his answers with you either on Facebook live on Friday via my decor8 page OR next week here on my blog…

    Home makers can often experience “burnout” after years of cooking. How are chefs able to keep their menus fresh, the entrees exciting and within budget (all things we can experience)? Even cookbooks seem to offer similar options. Thankfully, we have our garden vegetables and herbs seasonally here at home. But I’ve started to do things very simply out fatigue and out of ideas. Thank you for your input. Congratulations on an outstanding career and positive impact on your industry.

    What rug would you suggest for a long narrow entry? The tile is gray herringbone.

    How does he find passionate people to work with? My husband is a chef and Massimo is a huge inspiration for him :) He has had trouble hiring people as passionate and hard working as he is. It seems that Massimo has done an exellent job of surrounding himself with like minded people!
