Gelinaz Stay In with Riccardo Camanini

Gelinaz, the chef’s collective,  are back in town on the 3rd December. But this time, they are not travelling, they are staying “at home”. What travels this time, are their recipes. Each chef had to submit eight recipes that are typical for him/her, but she/he never served them at the restaurant yet. Those recipes were then shuffled and sent to another chef who will remix them in his/her own way and serve on the 3rd of December, for one night only, dishes inspired by those recipes to her/his guests. The guests and the chef will get to know whose recipes was interpreting the chef only at the end of the dinner through the Gelinaz ambassador who will attend the dinner (I will be that night the ambassador at the Aimsir restaurant in Ireland). Ambassadors will also take care of communication from the restaurants on that night, so if you are curious what is happening on the other side of the world, do follow us on Instagram (mine is here).


Riccardo Camanini has received the recipes. And now?


What was your first thought when you read the recipes you received?

Impossible!!! Many of the ingredients I don’t know at all …so…  funny, adventurous, deep…

What do you think of them now?

I’m very curious about the freshness and for sure behind them there is a very interesting mind!!!

If you had to choose an animal to describe them, what would it be?

TigerMan like in the cartoon!!! Symbolic, strong… 

What will be the greatest challenge for you in this Gelinaz project? 

I appreciate the open mindedness of the Chef –  I will try to work in the same way… Also, we are doing a great project of a massive cultural exchange cultures… thinking of all the chefs in the same moment with the same spirits and the same aim, I feel a great energy….

And what are you looking forward to?

Like always trying to bring my guest into a sort of trip … this time with the help of a “ghost friend” …

After this event is behind you, what’s the next thing?

Maybe visiting this “Ghost Chef” and touching his culture, kitchen. You never know what to expect.

Riccardo will cook at Lido 84 in Gardone Riviera BS. Tickets are sold out, but you can join the waiting list here.
