Fulvio Pierangelini

Chef, Italy


Fulvio in Exile

Fulvio Pierangelini is an Italian chef who began cooking professionally in 1977. In 1980, he took over the dilapidated seafood restaurant Gambero Rosso, in San Vincenzo, Tuscany and turned it into one of the best restaurants in the country. He closed the business in 2008.

In this video from the fourth MAD Symposium, he reads a letter in which he describes why he grew tired of restaurants and the dining scene. But also explains what he misses about cooking and what he dreams to do once he returns from his “exile.”
