“My cuisine comes from tradition and from a distant past.
It is made of memories. My mother’s gestures, the flavors I grew up with, the
traditional dishes, the knowledge of raw materials and of their cycle of life. First
comes the memory, then the dish.
First comes the design, then the recipe. This is what I can do. That’s my job.
Eyes, stomach and head. My secret ingredient? “You”. — Marco Martini
