Get ready to meet Matteo Morbini, the culinary sensation that's about to rock the Big Apple! The second in our series of collaborative residencies with Public space features this Tuscan dynamo who’s as cool as they come.
Matteo's culinary journey started with the classics in Italy's top-notch kitchens, but he didn't stop there. He cranked up the excitement with stints in Sydney, where he cooked up a storm with Peter Gilmore at Quay, and then hit London to learn from legends like Alyn Williams and Gordon Ramsay and a home run collab in NYC with celebrity chef Tom Colicchio.
What's his cooking style, you ask? It's like a wild Italian food party in your mouth! Picture dishes like courgette 'alla scapece,' wild nettle with chinotto, cappelletti 'ajo, ojo e peperoncino,' and chestnut 'bomboloncino' paired with homemade ricotta and pickled elderflower.
Matteo's culinary rulebook? Maximum respect for his ingredients and keeping it humble, of course. Even with legendary fans like celeb chef Tom Colicchio, with whom he recently did a pop-up in the Big Apple, Matteo remains grounded.
Oh, and about that secret project in the USA? Matteo's lips are sealed, but as he'd say, "Acqua in bocca." All we know is that we’re his very last stop before conquering NYC.
DATES: October 4 + 5
LOCATION: Bercylaan 301
