“Our philosophy at Meo Modo is simple but not taken for granted. We identify, personalise and differentiate our dishes by virtue of the ingredients we use, which are grown right here and in our immediate surroundings.”
After extensive experience honing his skills in Italy and abroad, Andrea Mattei gained his Michelin star in 2011, which was reconfirmed for Meo Modo in 2015 after his first season as executive chef. With an approach firmly rooted in his native Tuscan soil, Mattei continues to experiment and play with new ideas to transform local ingredients into simple yet groundbreaking dishes.
The large organic garden of over 200 species of vegetables, 50 aromatic herbs and 40 flowers drives the inspiration of our dishes. Chef Andrea Mattei, an expert in biodynamic agriculture himself, works closely with our gardeners to produce unique and delicious seasonal creations, almost as attractive to the eye as they are to the palate. Chef Mattei embraces our modus operandi of 'farm to plate' cooking and is the author of a simple but personal kitchen based on the close proximity of ingredients and local suppliers, adding to the authenticity of our Tuscan story.
