“I became a cook because I’m a glutton,” says Antonio Guida, star chef of the Seta restaurant, at the Mandarin Oriental in Milan. His cuisine is intense and powerful, made of original flavors which he studies, creates and invents without ever stopping.
This book tells his story: the affections, the iconic dishes, the raw materials, from Apulia to the Lombard capital, passing through Paris, Zurich and Asia. And, of course, his recipes: refined and unusual, successful without fail: explained step by step, they are accompanied by illustrations and a final glossary.
