ABOUT ANDREA BERTON
Andrea Berton (1970) began his culinary adventure in Milan alongside Gualtiero Marchesi. His training took him to the kitchens of the best restaurants in the world: London’s Mossiman, the Enoteca Pinchiorri in Florence and finally at Louis XV in the Principality of Monaco where he was taken under the wing of the legendary Alain Ducasse. Andrea Berton received his first Michelin star as a chef at the Taverna di Colloredo in Monte Albano (1997 – 2001). The collaboration with the Trussardi alla Scala restaurant also led him to a Michelin star in 2018, and a second one the following year. With the opening of the Berton Restaurant in 2013 Andrea Berton returned to “his” kitchen. In 2015 he was appointed Chef Ambassador of the EXPO. In 2016 he opened the Al Lago restaurant at Il Sereno on Lake Como which earned a Michelin star in November 2017. Author of the book “Non è il solito brodo”, now in its third reprint, Andrea Berton is guest of the Badrutt’s Palace Hotel for the first time on Friday 7 and Saturday 8 December.
