CHEF OLIVER GLOWIG

Chef
Restaurant "La Tavola, Il Vino, La Dispensa" - Rome

An ambassador of Italian gastronomic culture, Oliver has exported the concept of Mediterranean diet around the world with the "Primavera" restaurant at the Ritz Carlton in Bahrain, the "Inn" in Saas Fee in Switzerland and the "Toca" in Toronto.

His passion for cooking goes back many years: ever since he was a child he has accompanied his father to try out new restaurants. After concluding his studies, Oliver worked in Munich at Otto Koch at the "Le Gourmet" restaurant and at "Acquarello", run by Mario Gamba. However, a desire to increase his knowledge of Italian cuisine brought him to Italy, where he worked alongside Gualtiero Marchesi.

In 2004 he was awarded the Michelin star, followed by another Michelin star in 2008. In 2016, the chef launched a new project together with Salvatore de Gennaro, in the Central Market of Rome, at the restaurant "La Tavola, Vino e Dispensa".
