Discussing: The revolution of simplicity [ Monday: 2.30pm ]

Niko Romito (@NikoRomito) is the self-taught chef and owner of the Ristorante Reale in Castel di Sangro and he is the head and educational director of ?Niko Romito Formazione?, a professional Cooking School accredited by the Regione Abruzzo. His dishes focus on quality regional ingredients prepared using modern techniques, artistically presented in a minimalist style. In 2007 the restaurant was awarded its first Michelin star and a second Michelin star followed in 2009. He moved to the new restaurant, Reale-Casadonna, in Castel di Sangro (AQ), 10 km far from the original one, in August 2011 and in November 2013 the restaurant was awarded its third Michelin Star. In addition to his restaurants and cooking school, Niko also launched two projects that are both dear to his heart: ?Spazio?, an experimental laboratory-restaurant where Niko?s students are given the opportunity to cook under his supervision, and a web project called ?Unforketable?, where Niko shares his personal view of traditional Italian cuisine. In the gastronomic Italian guides he is among the best restaurant in Italy: GUIDA ESPRESSO 19/20 , GUIDA GAMBERO ROSSO TRE FORCHETTE 93/100. http://www.ristorantereale.com
