The Chef: Chef Marco Busatti With over 20 years experience in fine dining kitchens, Marco Busatti born in Tuscany in 1973, starts his career at 16 years old as an Apprentice Pastry Chef.
He soon discovers a passion for more than just Pasty, and joins Michelin-Starred Chef “Pierangelo Barontini” in his Restaurant in Montecatini, Tuscany, where he stays for over 6 years and where he starts learning the job of a Chef from the very beginning.
Following these positive 6 years, he joins Michelin-Starred Restaurant “Il Castagno” in Tuscany for another exciting 5 years relationship, which will enrich and develop his knowledge and skills to the position of Sous Chef.
He will than be working in Fine Dining Restaurants all over Tuscany and training with International Michelin-Starred Chefs such as Igles Corelli, Gianfranco Vissani and Ferran Adria from the multi-awarded Restaurant El Bulli.
These are the years where Marco consolidates his knowledge and creativity in what has soon become his culinary style, which will fully express when he joins as Executive Chef “L’Altro Uno Rosso” Restaurant, Florence and will further define to “Le Tre Lune” where he stays up until Isola Shanghai knocks at his door!
