This exceptional culinary venture by @massimobottura and @laratgilmore, @francescanafamily, is truly a gem, and I'm overjoyed to have been part of it by contributing my wheel-thrown tableware.
The summer was a season of boundless creativity for me as I worked tirelessly on a unique set of plates for this extraordinary restaurant. From initial prototypes to bringing new shapes and colors to life in my personal record time, the process still thrills me.
The vision of Al Gatto Verde unfolds in the beautifully restored courtyard of Acetaia Maria Luigia, surrounded by lush vineyards and bathed in the enchanting glow of firelight. In the kitchen, Chef Jess Rosval and her incredibly talented team craft culinary wonders, ready to welcome you on this culinary journey. Her creative dessert, CIELO TERRA MARE, is a work of art.
I extend my heartfelt gratitude to Jess Rosval for inviting me to be part of this extraordinary project. Here's to the harmonious fusion of artistry and gastronomy at Al Gatto Verde. Buon appetito!
