Bio dello Chef
Fabio Boschero has been the Rome Cavalieri executive chef since 2016, when he returned to Italy after numerous experiences abroad. From the first moment, he was able to give the menus a clear and precise approach: Mediterranean cuisine with international influences, the result of his being Italian and at the same time a profound connoisseur of international culinary culture. His cuisine has a very personal style, in which alongside the typically Italian products, exotic ingredients, vegan and gluten free foods appear. On the one hand, therefore, we find the excellent raw materials of the territory, with a careful search for small quality artisan productions, paying particular attention to the producers of Lazio, Tuscany and Umbria; on the other hand, unusual ingredients that blend perfectly with Mediterranean aromas, giving them that touch of color and flavor that makes each course unique. A seasonal menu, attentive to the rotation of raw materials and a philosophy that puts the healthiness of food in the foreground. Modern cooking techniques, such as low temperature cooking, but above all a great interaction between chefs and guests. Many of the activities move into the dining room, under the eyes of the diners who can taste the delicacies of the menu with their eyes, rather than their palate. Particular attention is paid to sustainability: not only the general virtuous techniques that have earned the hotel the Green Key certification, the international environmental quality mark promoted by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE), recognized by UNESCO as a leader world in the field of environmental education and sustainable development – but also attention to the selection of raw materials, with choices aimed at the traceability of products and the containment of waste, especially ingredients of animal origin. His tasty, beautiful, colorful, healthy cuisine is always very attentive to the new needs of a public increasingly sensitive to the aesthetics of food, health, the environment and the modern taste of what it eats. Italian and cosmopolitan, Fabio Boschero has a long experience in catering to his credit, having been responsible for “excellent” kitchens not only in Italy but also in Brazil, the United States, the Caribbean and South America, where he was able to compete with the wishes of the most demanding international clientele.
