Valerio Braschi is awarded «Young Chef of the Year»

The prestigious Espresso Guide “Restaurants and wines of Italy 2021 has named the young chef from Romagna Valerio Braschi, 23, as «Young Chef of the Year».

He is co-owner of his first restaurant, Ristorante 1978, which reopened on June 2nd with many innovative proposals on the menu. For example Lasagna is cooked in the traditional way but then reduced to pulp and enclosed in a tube similar to that of a toothpaste. This reminds the young chef of when, «after the holidays, as soon as I woke up, before brushing my teeth I would open the fridge and bite into the lasagna that was inside».
