Introducing our Chef

Our Chef, Matteo Rossi, has always been a Chef. Throughout his career, he has been widely recognised for his skills and is considered one of the best young Chefs of the region.  He started cooking from a young age, learning how to make traditional Piemontese dishes from his Nonna. From the age of 15, he started working in professional kitchens and never looked back. From local Trattorie to Michelin starred restaurants, he found his way to La Vie and is always excited to show his creative spin on Piemontese’s classical recipes.

Local Sourcing

Matteo’s knowledge and passion for food is clear to anyone who spends time in his kitchen. For him, it’s all about finding the best local suppliers and the freshest of ingredients, from asparagus in May to porcinis in September and white truffles in October.

Simplicity at its best

Matteo uses his local knowledge and classical training to deliver modern vibrant Piemontese dishes, full of flavour and beautifully, yet simply decorated.
