Zafferano & Co. Friends: Chef Diego Puddu


After the hight school in business accounting and working in my family’s business, I decided to follow my true passion for good food. I moved to Piedmont, specifically Turin, were I attended the Les Meridens Cooking Accademy. Following two years of study and internships I began my career by working all around Italy and Europe. I worked at the Forte Village (best resort in the word) in Sardegna, and worked in different regions learning different and local traditions, in Umbria for Casa Vissani, in Siena for the new restaurant in Castel Monastero Resort for Gordon Ramsey. I went to France and worked at Saint Maxime on the Cote Azzure then to England where I worked at Zafferano in London. I later moved on to Yorkshire where I worked in a imporant hotel, In Switzerland I worked in a private chalet in St.Moritz. In Florence I was the Executive Chef at Villa Fiesole Hotel (Florence hotel group). After all of these years of learning my art and working in different places all over Italy, France, England, Switzerland, I’ve decided to put my experience to work for you as a private chef.

Buon Apettito!

If you fry two cutlets at a time , use half the butter and when you have finished the operation clean the pan and fry the remaining chops with the remaining butter .
