THE KITCHEN OF ORGANIKA

The cuisine of Organika is young, attentive to the study of the “raw ingredients” which is expressed in the search for breeders, farmers, and dairies who have made quality their mission.

Technique and knowledge interact, offering a taste experience that is the the symbiosis between art, craftsmanship and quality.

CHEF GAETANO

Originally from Sicily, Chef Gaetano began his training among the ancient markets of Palermo where smells, tastes, and sounds blend together creating the mixture that in the kitchen, as in life, gives rise to an original harmony. He left his city convinced that only through the “journey” and the knowledge that comes from it, can one grow in competence and professionalism.

He worked in Relais Chateaux properties, in Italy, such as the Taverna Estia in Naples, then moved abroad to further his knowledge. He arrived at Lebury in London then later in Paris where he had the opportunity to work with Master’s such as Robuchon and Pacaud. His experience was also enhanced by a working project with the Ritz. Once back in Italy, he fell in love with Cortona and Tuscany and here he decided to put down roots, by joining the Organika Restaurant project, where he took over the kitchen.
