Lo Chef

Cristian Conti

A young Cremonese chef with great culinary sensitivity, he began his adventure at the Scuderie bringing a conspicuous and multifaceted baggage of international experiences and innovative concepts regarding cooking and preparation techniques.

Between rightly spaced tables and granite columns, dinner is a high-class experience: the kitchen expresses study and originality, combinations of character, accurate aesthetics. Cremona, the city where Stradivari lived, has another record of excellence: a “violin maker of the kitchen” who knows how to make his creations resonate with the chords and melodies of taste.
