Lisa Banchieri’s innovative and vibrant cooking is a homage to Tuscany and her beloved grandmother Eugenia. It was among the copper pots and pans, in her nonna’s Tuscan kitchen, that Lisa at a young age discovered her passion for cooking. This love for Tuscany and it’s gastronomic culture, taste and heritage, led her to attend the prestigious Scuola Etoile di Chioggia where she attained a global vision and understanding of the many facets of cooking. 

Lisa’s cooking style is now a joyous blend of tradition and innovation. She strives to appraise the generous natural resources provided by the land but also enjoys incorporating exotic flavours and ingredients into her menus. A true appassionata of the kitchen; Lisa combines her technical abilities with an impeccable savoir-faire (“know-how”).
