Chef Rick Bottari

Get to know me better

A person who believes compromise is the door to mediocrity and that true cooking has no time or space for anything but Perfection and Passion

The ability to stay pure to yourself and the Italian way. Whilst still enjoying the purity of full traditional flavours when eating Vegan or traditional fare, was very difficult to find. It was my mission to morph my Italian heritage and all those wonderfull flavours into a dining and culinary experience, which i am proud to have created and called VEGANNO - Italian Cuisine with a Conscience.

I was lucky enough to train/ on the job with Arno Gonnano Master Chef in Lucca Tuscany he was Last apprentice Chef to the King and Queen of Italy .The most important thing he kept reinforcing was" Without Passion in life There is Nothing". This is what has propelled me and why i began my quest to create the perfect Italian fraditional or Vegan Cuisine. Full of love flavours, family heritage and pride.
