A passion project infused with purpose, two-Michelin-starred Gaetano Trovato and Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru collaborate to nurture Maldivian culinary talent in Tuscany. Sharing is at the heart of culinary maestro Gaetano Trovato*s vision. After forty years of sharing superlative dining experiences with guests, Chef Trovato is realising a long-held dream of sharing his passions with the next generation of global chefs.
Born in Sicily, Gaetano Trovato*s career begins with the poorest but nevertheless most symbolic food ever: bread "In the summer holidays, to add to the household income, I started working in a bakery near my home in the old town of Colle di Val d*Elsa. This bakery made bread with sourdough starter and cooked it in an old wood-burning oven; I remember that you could smell the freshly made bread in all the nearby streets. This experience left an indelible mark that continues to influence my cooking and, even now, we serve our own bread to our customers, twice a day," the Chef shares on his website.
Over the years, Chef Travato travelled extensively, moving away from the province of Siena to Rimini, Turin and Switzerland. He then moved to France where he began his training in haute cuisine with the founding father of nouvelle cuisine Roger VergÃ¨ and the pastry chef Gaston Lenotre. Before starting his own business, Gaetano had the opportunity to work in Sarzana with Angelo Paracucchi where " he learnt how to bring flavor to life". Gaetano*s many achievements over the years have now culminated in the opening in 2022 of the new Arnolfo in Colle di Val d*Elsa, at a new location, in its 40th anniversary year.
As part of an exclusive ongoing collaboration with Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru, talented young Maldivian chefs have been flown to Chef Trovato*s new Tuscan restaurant, Arnolfo The Frame, to learn their craft alongside the visionary himself.
The Arnolfo dÃ©gustation dinner showcasing Chef Trovato*s exclusive new menu is now available at Landaa Giraavaru*s Blu Beach Club. Only two tables are available per evening, reservations are essential. Chef Gaetano Trovato himself will be back in residence at Four Seasons Landaa Giraavaru from February 27 to March 5, 2023.
