To chef Roberto Tonola, cooking is a passion that was passed down through generations, a true family story. Son of chef Antonio Tonola, Roberto likes to experiment with new creations based on local products. For example, eggs from wild hens that roam freely in the woods, chestnuts and mushrooms harvested in the forests, and wild game from the nearby hunting areas.
