I was born years ago in Sardinia, Italy, in a small village called San Sperate near Cagliari in Sardinia Food has always been a major part of My life: in his early days his parents would serve meals with the all family around the table and, as soon it was finished, they were already talking about the next meal. At the age of thirteen he left home to go and study as an apprentice chef on the Costa Smeralda. He continued his schooling during the winter and worked in five-star hotels during the summer, continually honing his skills.In 1993 I decided to move to London and to gain experience of working abroad. He arrived in London at the right time when everything culinary was happening. He went to work several Michelin-starred restaurants – Le Gavroche, River Café among them - and learnt English. At the same time he gained experience of some more exotic styles of cooking. In December 1998 I wasintroduced to Berkeley Square to run the kitchen. During his time there I also had the opportunity of gaining further experience in other restaurants, including Chez Maxim’s in Paris. After several years and having cooked for a considerable number of top businessmen, royalty, prime ministers and actors, Marco has produced his own signature dishes, which have been highly acclaimed by his customers. My cooking style, whilst heavily influenced by his Italian and French background, is an eclectic mixture of traditional and modern European and Asian cuisine. Read all Hide
