How to Prove Yourself in Massimo Bottura's Kitchen

How to Prove Yourself in Massimo Bottura's Kitchen
From Fine Dining Lovers - April 10, 2018

We all know how passionate Massimo Bottura is about what he does, from cooking to his social projects like Food for Soul and Il Tortellante. So its not a surprise that he expects absolute passion and dedication from his team at his three-Michelin-star Osteria Francescana restaurant in Modena, Italy.

So what does Bottura do to test the passion of his staff? Well, as the energetic chef recently revealed to us he likes to play a game with them called, Who are you?, in which he asks the staff to cook a classic dish, a tiramisu for example, their way. From the oldest sous-chef to the youngest stageaire, all are encouraged to express their own ideas of how the dish should be made, questioning tradition to allow the dish to evolve, which of course, is at the heart of Botturas philosophy at Osteria Francescana.

And more than once a dish from the game has been the starting point of a process for a new dish on the menu. One example is a tiramisu souffl, which was the amalgamation of three peoples Who are you games.
