Renowned Italian chef Gualtiero Marchesi appears as an avatar in the Feed For Good video platform of recipes and tips for healthy eating.
Marchesi is considered to be the founder of modern Italian cuisine. In 1977, he won his first Michelin star and, eight years later, became the first non-French chef to receive three.
