Pietro Rongoni

His name in Moscow is synonymous not only with great Tiramisu but also of quality traditional Italian Cuisine, which he has always promoted in the five establishments in which he has worked. The Milan born chef has taught the secrets of Italian Cuisines to the Russians, plus he has formed a mob of talented young chefs (including Alessio and Ezechiele) who are now cooking everywhere in Moscow and Russia at large. “This makes me proud and I believe that is more important than economic success”, says Pietro.
