Our Skinny Italian Chef is shot and interviewed by Grazia magazine in Paris at the prestigious Galerie Perrotin

If you're in France look out for this week's Grazia magazine which features a six page interview with our very own skinny Italian chef, Massimo Bottura. Massimo was interviewed by Lisa Vignoli for the piece and photographed by Jérôme Bonnet.

A passionate art lover and collector  Massimo chose the upmarket setting of the Galerie Perrotin for the shoot. In our pictures Massimo is pictured in front of Normal Luck (2015) - installations de plantes dorées à la feuille d’or, part of the exhibition "a wander" by Lionel Estève at Galerie Perrotin until 30 May 2015 , Paris - 76 rue de Turenne. We'll bring you a some choice cuts and more photos from the piece once it's published.
