Paolo is a chef who embodies carpe diem. His inspiration comes from his surroundings, from travel, from experiences and even from silence. As is typical of Italian culture, growing up with his Nona and mother and watching them prepare meals gave Paolo a taste for cooking.
“Los Cabos makes me happy. I think it has one of the best climates in the world, at least of all the places I’ve visited. Being able to go to the beach at any time is something I love. In addition, the raw material for cooking, from vegetables to the catch of the day, is the best there is.”
Paolo finds inspiration in travel, even if it’s just for three days. He tries to escape whenever he can. Other times, ideas come to him in silent moments alone.
“Traveling always opens your mind and lets you learn new things. It enriches you in culture and also in gastronomy. It is said that the best ideas come to you when you travel or when you are silent, without thinking about anything specific. That’s why I always carry a notebook with me, to write down my ideas.”
When Paolo is not in the kitchen, he enjoys spending quiet time at home or traveling near Los Cabos and throughout Mexico. His perfect vacation in Baja California Sur would definitely be with his family, wife, parents, siblings and all who join in.
“I love Mexican culture, even when I only have three days to travel.
I am grateful that my wife is with me. If my entire family were here, it would be even more exciting. Another of my dream destinations is Japan. I will be traveling there soon.”
Favorite dish for a meeting with friends: I usually improvise to suit the preferences of my friends. However, Paolo’s special is a tasty pasta.
“Happy” dish: A simple sandwich or quesadilla.
Essential utensil: Some special tweezers and my knives. I even take them on vacation!
Words to live by: Prepare a dish a thousand times. If it doesn’t surprise you, don’t serve it.
“Of course, we are open to the local community. We want locals to experience the facilities, spa, restaurants and enjoy the beautiful view.”
