Meet chef Massimiliano Alajmo who is the youngest chef in history to have been awarded three stars by the Michelin Guide.

Max has the restaurant industry in his blood where he started learning about food by cooking in the kitchen of Le Calandre with his mamma Rita from an early age. He developed his craft at the top cooking school Istituto Alberghiero di Abano Terme and then went on to work with top Italian and French chefs including Alfredo Chiocchetti, Michel Guérard and Marc Veyrat.

Now together with his brother Raffaele, Max oversees the kitchens of the Alajmo family’s three restaurants, three café-bistros, and various line of food products – all of which stem from from his vibrant culinary laboratory Le Calandre.
