Mise en place del ristorante Anna Ghisolfi

I chose the interior of a deconsecrated church from the 1500s, which has been a cinema and recording studio over the years, renovated and redesigned with a modern, minimalist design.

Here I stage my gastronomic theater, where the work in the kitchen is a stage oriented toward the room and its guests.

In a large, bright, cool room with very high ceilings, the tables are wrought iron reminiscent of an audience in an open and transparent dialogue with the stage. The mise en place is minimalist, and essential and reflects the gastronomic proposal, enriching itself with details and elements little by little as the various dishes follow each other on the menu.

The all-female staff brigade and the lounge

International and all-female, the kitchen brigade is composed of figures who do not come from the classical course of study but whom I trained directly. Suylen Reyes, Larissa Celak, Oriella Rovina, Rose Paculava, met in contexts other than the kitchen and then joined me, fascinated by a shared project.

The dining room is managed by Tiziana Acerbi, who coordinates a team of young waiters from the Santa Chiara hotel school, a historic professional institute in the area. With a view to a comprehensive training course, the wait staff takes its first steps in the kitchen, where it delves into ingredients, preparations and mise en place, in order to be able to dialogue appropriately with the customers seated at the table.

Anna Ghisolfi e il suo team
Dettaglio del dehor del ristorante

Having started from a 'simple' take-away service, following increasingly frequent requests, I set up my first professional kitchen and started the Anna Ghisolfi Catering service.

We established ourselves among the best in Italy and Europe thanks to a responsible and attentive team so that every service would be impeccable, planned and executed with extreme care and precision. The awards obtained are a source of pride for me and my staff and an incentive to pay daily attention to the quality standards achieved, which must remain constant.

Today, alongside the restaurant business, we offer services for individuals and companies: weddings, christenings, gala dinners, birthdays, corporate events, business lunches.

Upon request, our professionals can also take care of researching the ideal location for the service, coordinate the rental of equipment and marquees, suggest experts in floral decorations, special effects, musicians, bartenders and mixologists.
