Chef Alfio Ghezzi
orn in 1970, as tough as his motherland: Trentino.
His masters have been two of the most important connoisseurs of the Italian culinary excellences: Gualtiero Marchesi and Andrea Berton. He worked with the first in the Hostaria dell'Orso in Rome and in the Casinò Les Princes in Cannes, while he has been Berton’s sous-chef in the Trussardi alla Scala restaurant in Milan.
But the call of the “origins” was too strong and so his love for this area brought him back to Trentino, where he has been chef in the Locanda Margon restaurant from 2010 to 2019, getting great satisfaction: above all, the accolade of the first Michelin star in 2010, and the attribution of the second Michelin star in 2016.
D uring the 2019 Garda con Gusto event Alfio Ghezzi will blow our mind with an opening show cooking together with a young chef, Matteo Delvai, a real talent from our region; he has even been awarded as the 2019 best young cook during the cooking contest in Rimini, organised by the Italian Chef Federation.
On Friday, the 1st November at 12 pm, the two chefs Alfio Ghezzi and Matteo Delvai will take us on a culinary trip to discover some real excellences of Lake Garda Trentino: the De.Co carne salada, the lake fish, and particularly the king of the lake waters: the Lake Garda Carp, a native variety of fish that lives only in the crystal clear waters of Lake Garda and has represented the fortune of the coastal fishermen for centuries.
The pasta will be from the local pasta factory excellence: Monograno Felicetti, and as a gift from mother nature, Alfio and Matteo will take us on a sense discovery of one of the most genuine products grown in the Altogarda countryside: the green broccoli from Torbole, presided over by Slow Food.
The show cooking suggestion will include an entrée, a starter, a first and a second dish; all of them together will take the taster on a real sense trip through the unique region of Garda Trentino.
