Here’s how we celebrated Massimo Bottura’s birthday
The Skinny Italian chef tucked into cake at our Bleecker Street offices in New York last week
The brilliant Italian chef and author Massimo Bottura returned to New York last week, to speak at the sixth edition of the international chef’s forum Identita Golose, which is staged each year to showcase Italian culinary excellence.
It was Massimo’s birthday while he was in town, and we at Phaidon marked this with an intimate cake-based celebration at our Louis Sullivan-designed Bleecker Street offices.
Happy belated birthday, Massimo! For more on the celebrated chef's life, gastronomy and the philosophy that informs both, get a copy of his book, Never Trust a Skinny Italian Chef here. Meanwhile, for a simple introduction to Italian cookery try The Italian Cookery School. Who knows you could end up like Massimo.
