Originally from Milan, Fabio Cuccheli was introduced to the culinary world at an early age due to a great passion for food. Fabio first honed his culinary skills at Pietro D’Abano Culinary School before moving on to various award-winning restaurants like Californian three-star Michelin restaurant, French Laundry. He was also at Ristorante La Siriola of the Siriola Group in Italy. He currently leads the kitchen team at Zafferano, the restaurant situated atop Singapore's Ocean Financial Centre's 43rd floor. Fabio's culinary philosophy and passion revolves strongly around preserving an ingredient's natural flavours and complimenting them with other fresh and seasonal produce, and this clearly transcends into his cooking.
