Philippe BARANES : Creation & Direction
The creative force behind this tableau from the land of Dante is Philippe Baranes, the humble creator of distinctive, modern concept restaurants in Paris. At restaurant Il Cuoco Galante, Philippe Baranes celebrates a refined take on everyday cuisine, giving centre-stage to the peerless savoir-faire of the artisan and the finest fresh produce simply prepared, without excess fanfare and with all due respect to tradition.
Reworking classic recipes with chef Ilaria Conti, with a focus on fresh pasta of unrivalled quality handmade daily on the premises, Philippe also adds a sprinkling of modernity to traditional Italian flavours. The open kitchen - a Baranes leitmotiv – bridges the gap between diners and chef in a strikingly warm blue-hued dining room.
