Chef Andrea Valentinetti was born in Padua in 1985 and discovered his passion for cooking at a young age. After training at the hotel institute in Abano Terme, he left his hometown and travelled to the island of Ponza where he gained some work experience in the popular restaurant, Gino Pesce’s Acqua Pazza. In 2004 he returned to Padua and worked in several restaurants around the local area before becoming the head chef at Le Calandre restaurant. Several years later he moved to Milan where he collaborates with Denis Dianin at the DeG patisserie in Selvazzano Dentro. After working hard to gain all of this experience, Andrea finally realised his dream of running his own kitchen and took the helm at Radici where he has since gained acclaim from esteemed critics worldwide.
Discovering is the ability to be disoriented by simple things.
