Don’t call him CHEF, he doesn’t like it. But if we write the first three letters in red, then everything changes. His idol is CHE: Che Guevara.
He likes to be called Bobo, and together with his wife Rita he owns a restaurant called Ribo, situated on the hills of Molise. He’s been working in the kitchen since he was six, so it’s the right place to start taking pictures of him in his red “uniform”.
Che, the hammer and sickle. He lives in the kitchen, the staff are his followers, and the customers his people. He invents, transforms, fights. He fights so that everyone uses local and natural ingredients, he fights against excessively variegated menus.
“I never know what I’m gonna cook. Every morning I go to the market and cook depending on the fresh ingredients that I find”.
His last creature is called “Sea Cappuccino”: a Martini glass with black beans puree, kidney beans puree, scampi au gratin with bread crumbs, parsley, olive oil, and … his exclusive homemade truffle sauce.
“If you don’t love Che, beware!” You could get plates decorated with the hammer and sickle.
