The Chef

 

Massimo Spigaroli

Working on his grandfather's farm, Massimo Spigaroli manages to run a Michelin-starred restaurant at the same time as his charcuterie business, which produces the best Culatello in the world. Born in Polesine Parmense in 1958 into a family of farmers, restaurateurs and butchers who owned vast amounts of land outside the city of Parma. Even as a child he loved helping his aunt Emilia (a well-known chef amongst the local community) in the kitchen. ‘The smell of the broth coming from the kitchen where my mum used to cook is my first memory of food,’ he says. ‘A smell that I have searched for ever since.’
