Everyone has the right to feel a star chef in his kitchen, but expectations crashing against reality. This teaches today the cooking programs that crowd the schedules of the television networks. From the choice of ingredients to the dishes, Masterchef & Co. showed the common people how to cook and eat in the world of luxury restaurants, where food is not the only protagonist. Eating becomes a real multi-sensory experience, which involves the customer from sight to taste. In this way the customers of the Italian star restaurants increase, while the local cuisine remains firmly at the top of the ranking made by the Michelin Guide.

LE CALANDRE – Rubano (Padua) – chef Massimiliano Alajmo

A sober and very intimate atmosphere. Very little lighting so as not to disperse the concentration of customers. Like on a stage the spotlight is all focused on the plates.

The menu provides the opportunity to try out long tasting routes, from historical dishes to the most recent ones, with the possibility of jumping from one to another to your liking.
