On the hills of Liguria and France a car climbs towards the Alps.One of the most innovative great Italian chefs, Paolo Masieri has his garden up there, his country home, his herbs.P aolo goes exploring with a stick through the wilderness, picks strawberries and selects thyme.P aolo runs along the beach, runs into the early morning fishing boats, has a friend visit from Milan, turns on the stove and prepares the line, supervises the assistants, coordinates his work with Barbara his wife, together they run the restaurant bearing the same name, in Sanremo.
He’s a magician, master of a calm magic which belongs to the surroundings which are permeated by this sense of tranquillity.Only this way the amber sky which lights up the hills can explode and transform those who will savour this in edible delights.
This is Paolo’s miracle: to nourish on life itself in order to nourish others.
