Michele Valotti – Trattoria La Madia
Watch the video and discover why Michele Valotti chose Le Piantagioni del Caffè specialty coffees for his creations and his restaurant.
Michele Valotti of Trattoria La Madia in Brione has chosen our coffee for his restaurant because he sees his own values and the authenticity that he looks for in the raw materials that he uses in our products.
Michele Valotti is an enthusiast, living and working every day in the effort to go beyond a standard conception of cuisine and promote the concepts of dynamism and mutability that belong to food. Michele Valotti is one of the Specialty People!
We immediately felt in-step with him, and this is why we continue to support him in his efforts!
This is how Michele Valotti presented his project:
“I’m Michele Valotti and I’m the chef at Trattoria La Madia in Brione. What I do, support and promote is the most authentic, true, imperfect and variable cuisine possible. In my kitchen I don’t want to start from a preconceived idea of a recipe with a final result, but I try to adapt to a vital and true raw material with a story to tell. I start constructing the dish from this point and I change the menu often!
You’ll never eat the same dish twice at Trattoria La Madia because, although the recipe remains
basically the same, variables come into play due to adaptation to an ingredient that is so authentic and therefore changeable that it gives life to a different dish. This is really what I try to do because I don’t like standard concepts: when something is fixed, immobile, it’s dead, and what I want to do is something different! I use Le Piantagioni del Caffè coffees because the end of a meal is one of the main moments of a restaurant lunch or dinner: it’s the memory that our restaurant gives to our clients, and it’s a sign of our attention to the raw materials that we use. Le Piantagioni del Caffè, with their different single-estate coffees that express territoriality and seasonality, are perfectly in line with my idea of cuisine, with the idea of Trattoria La Madia cuisine!”
