The story of Giuseppe Mancino, the 2 Michelin star chef of the Restaurant Il Piccolo Principe, seems to be one of those stories where the real protagonist of the story is destiny, among sliding doors, mistakes and new occasions.
In fact, Giuseppe Mancino, before becoming a chef, had other projects. He dreamed of being a pizza chef and for this purpose he was working since he was young.
Our story begins when the young Mancino was busy in front of a pizza oven. However, due to some mistakes or not knowing how to wait for the owners, Giuseppe is moved from the pizza oven to the kitchen.
Misunderstandings, mistakes, a rejection at the base of a new life and a new path that will lead Giuseppe Mancino to look at chefs such as Gualtiero Marchesi, Rocco Iannone, Alain Ducasse.
Reference figures, sometimes not only on a professional level, always a source of inspiration.
Even today, with the chef at the head of the Restaurant Il Piccolo Principe is called constantly to confront itself with an international clientele, demanding and changeable over time.
The secret, says the chef himself, lies in the ability to guess the tastes of the guests, to create a mix that satisfies everyone through land and sea dishes, without forgetting the vegetarians.
In the future there is the desire to open a restaurant that bears his name, to expand the gourmet sector, by giving a special eye to breakfast, to design dishes from taverns that respect the standards of a luxury hotel.
