Massimo Bottura and his brigade just broke for the summer

Here’s how the world-famous chef and his Osteria Francescana staff wished each other buone vacanze!

How did you celebrate the beginning of your summer holiday? Here's what Massimo Bottura and his brigade at Modena’s three Michelin-star restaurant Osteria Francescana did when they they broke for their annual vacation at the weekend.



That might look wild, but Bottura certainly deserves a break. This year he turned his Food for Soul philanthropic initiative into a genuine, global concern; took the number two slot on The World’s 50 Best Restaurants List; and still found time to star in a new Netflix movie.

We would like to wish buone vacanze to Massimo and all his team. For more on his life, cookery and outlook get Never Trust a Skinny Italian Chef; and for more on his Food for Soul initiative, pre-order Bread is Gold.
