Ivano’s first guest is

Yoji Tokuyoshi

Yoji moved to Italy from Japan more than ten years ago, with a great desire to widen his horizons. Destiny brought him right to the Osteria Francescana to work with the great Massimo Bottura. He stayed with the inspiring chef for about ten years. Ivan and Yoji worked together at Massimo Bottura’s kitchen and developed a friendship which still lasts today. Two years ago Yoji moved from Modena to Milano to start his own restaurant Tokuyoshi. Already a few months after the opening it received the first Michelin star and great accolades from all the important food journalists and food lovers. Yoji calls his cuisine “contaminated Italian cuisine” mixing his Japanese heritage with the Italian influences. He describes it: “Cucina Italiana Contaminata” is not fusion. Fusion is nothing more than merging of two different things. I was born in Japan, but I have matured in Italy. My cuisine is an expression of this personal experience. It’s birth of something new. “
