Food was one of Luciano Pavarotti’s great passions.
The concept of food for Emilian people (which is a feature of all Italians in general) means not only nourishment, but also conviviality. The “social” dimension of each meal was a fundamental element for Maestro, it was synonymous with joy for him. For Maestro, food also represented the bond with his land and, when his profession took him away from home, rediscovering the Emilian flavors was a way to feel less far from his origins and his world.
Maestro loved cooking, too. At the stove he was curious, he always asked about ingredients and procedures; once the basic steps had been mastered, Maestro used to take notes in his personal diaries, that were the starting point for realizing the book ALLA LUCIANO.
The recipes guarded in his diaries were entrusted to the skilled hands of Michelin-starred Chef Luca Marchini, so that complete and refined procedures could take shape from Maestro’ scattered notes and original recipes could be accompanied by images of the cooked dishes, ready to be served.
