The most recent title in a beautifully photographed series that explores the creative synergy between a well-known Italian chef (Mauro Uliassi) and a contemporary Italian artist (Giovanni Gaggia). Uliassi is a 3-star Michelin chef who has transformed a beachside caf (called Uliassi) in Senigallia, a port town on the Adriatic coast, into a world-class restaurant. It is considered one of the top 20 restaurants in Italy. The recipes he presents here showcase the work of artist Giovanni Gaggia, a contemporary conceptual artist who is based in Pergola, near Urbino. The text, which illuminates the interplay of the recipes and the art, has been contributed by notable food and art critics. Text in English and Italian.
