Tiziano Rossetti, born in Rimini in 1971, lives in Montefiore Conca, mediaeval capital of the Conca valley in Italy’s Emilia Romagna, a region rich in history and tradition. Having graduated from catering school in 1988, he trained alongside several famous chefs at renowned restaurants both in Italy and abroad. In Baschi with Gianfranco Vissani, in Parma with Marco Parizzi, in Colmar (France) with Michel Magada, at the Locanda Solarola with Bruno Barbieri, in Lausanne with Adolf Blokbergen, at the Calandre with Massimiliano Alajmo, at Hotel Halkin di London, the Rex in Los Angeles and at Louise’s in Philadelphia.
I have been lucky enough to have known four great chefs who have helped me greatly in my professional, cultural and personal development. The first was Gino Angelini, then executive chef at the Grand Hotel Des Bains in Riccione, where I worked the summer season as a youngster. A native of Romagna, like myself, today Angelini is chef patron of various very successful restaurants in Los Angeles.
It was in Riccione too that I had the great luck of meeting Gualtiero Marchesi, often a guest at the Grand Hotel Des Bains and great friend of Angelini. So it was that, having finished school,
I found myself, at the age of twenty, working in his famous restaurant.
Other key meetings were those with Vincenzo Cammerucci and Fulvio Pierangelini.
I have worked extensively in the role of entremetier, probably because, in Romagna, we have a great tradition of dexterity in the preparation of stuffed pasta and indeed all pasta dishes from which we draw inspiration, creativity and fun.
Avant-garde cuisine is created through experimentation, on the understanding that only very few dishes will be successful and served to the clientele. Those who experiment must have a knowledge of gastronomy, general culture, knowledge of flavors, a great palate and, above all, great freedom so as not to get caught up in their own know how and have the humility to recognize who does a thing better. Nowadays it is easy to find talent in a chef, but this was only made possible thanks to the contribution of Marchesi, who broke down the barriers in search of an innovative concept.
When people ask me what advice I would give to a young cook I tell him not to hurry to become chef de partie. Be in no hurry to become a chef. Do not rush to open a restaurant. You must take the time to learn for as long as you can make the right compromises.
