“The year 2017 has been for me a year of a great personal growth. I finished my London adventure, full of satisfactions, and on a personal level with my marriage. In February 2018 I am moving to Shanghai, still working for the same hotel group - at EDITION Shanghai, which is part of Marriott’s Ritz Carlton, again in collaboration with Jason Atherton. I couldn’t be happier.
For me the most important desserts of this year were our red velvet (created for the Shanghai EDITION hotel as the signature dessert), Alaska and chocolate panettone. I love panettone - it is like a Christmas tree for me.
To all of you I am wishing a happy 2018 and best of luck! I am happy to share with you my red velvet.”
