Third Michelin star for Massimo Bottura

Third Michelin star for Massimo Bottura
The highest honour from arguably the world's most revered restaurant guide has been awarded to the 11 table establishment belonging to chef-patron Massimo Bottura, one of the world's most creative culinary forces.
 
"If the understated sophistication of the dining room recalls elegant Franciscan simplicity, all traces of an osteria have become a distant memory through the intellectual creations of the chef, the prophet of an avant-garde and conceptually innovative kitchen who evokes childhood memories and Modenese flavours." Italian Michelin Guide 2012
 
Responding to the news Massimo Bottura explained:
"I began dreaming about Michelin when we opened Osteria Francescana in 1995. We were awarded a two-Michelin-star rating in 2006 and have maintained it ever since until today when Michelin bestowed their ultimate rating, a much coveted third star. The road to acquiring these stars has been long and arduous but this news confirms that it has all been worth it: the sacrifices, especially regarding family and friends, the discipline and the dreams. I speak for my staff as well as myself."

"I always advise young chefs to believe in their dreams. And today I say with more confidence than ever before: 'Impossible is Nothing'."
Massimo Bottura opened Osteria Francescana in the heart of Modena in 1995. It was awarded its first Michelin star in 2002 and the second four years later. Since then Osteria Francescana has engaged in a profound exploration of territory and tradition which expresses itself in the absolute concentration of flavours guided by conceptual premises.
"The synthesis of our kitchen relies on an intelligent evolution of Italian traditions, reverence for technique and symbiotic relationships with our artisans."
 
A key figure amongst a new generation of chefs, Massimo Bottura has witnessed Osteria Francescana unanimously ranked top by L'espresso, Gambero Rosso, and Touring guides this year. Currently resting at 4th position on the S.Pellegrino World`s 50 Best Restaurants listing and voted the best restaurant in Italy for the past 3 years, the restaurant is also the current holder of the S. Pellegrino World`s 50 Best Restaurants "Chef`s Choice" award, voted for by the rarefied group of chefs from the top 50 establishments. The restaurant's 3 Michelin stars now sit comfortably against this year's "Grand Prix de l`Art" award from the International Culinary Academy in Paris.

Spring has made an appearance, at last and we have al fresco ideas from picnics in the park to sky-high snacking in London and all over the world.

Helen Hokin: I’m considering relocating to Barbados. I could swap my reindeer onesie for a designer one-piece and save on heating bills without the hassle of switching suppliers every other month.

Travelling to a different part of the world usually means sampling the local cuisine, but if you’re headed somewhere as uninhabited and challenging as the Antarctic, then you only get to eat what you bring with you.
