2024 Chefs

JULY - CANELLE LABUTHIE, Marseille

To kick off this new format, we'll start in July with a chef from Marseille, Canelle Labuthie. An anthropologist by training, Cannelle began exploring cooking in a very personal way. Her research on heirloom seeds sparked her interest in locally sourced products and the stories behind the transmission of plants and family recipes. Now based in Marseille, she has developed a cuisine with mainly Caribbean and Mediterranean influences, highlighting local producers.

AUGUST - ARTURO FRONZINO, Sicilian

In August, we will have the pleasure of hosting the Sicilian chef and resident of the Villa Medici in Rome, Arturo Franzino, for a year-long culinary residency. After spending his adolescence in Sicily, his passion for connecting with local producers led him on a continuous quest for a more locavore, environmentally friendly, and cost-effective cuisine, revisiting early 20th-century European culinary traditions. After cooking all year with renowned Italian and French chefs from the gastronomic world, he will offer a unique menu that will evolve weekly, showcasing local producers and our garden.
