Michele Griglio | Executive Chef | 1* Michelin

In November 2014, Michele was awarded its first star by the Michelin Guide, making it a new star in the Florentine sky and a new member of the 2015 Michelin Guide.

Since June 2011, Michele Griglio is the Executive Chef of Restaurant Winter Garden by Caino, The St. Regis Florence.

His early carrer begins in the kitchen of 2 Michelin Star chef, Walter Eynard in Torre Pellice, followed by an experience with Paul Knight, Ryan Matherson and Allister Bishop in London. For the following three years he worked with renowned French Chef Marc Lanteri in Mondovì (CN, Italy) as his right arm at the Baluardo where after just 18 months they received a Michelin star.

Thanks to his background, his skills and an extensive experience with Michelin Star chefs and in 5 star deluxe hotels as Le Meridien Piccadilly (London), Delle Antiche Contrade and Flipot Restaurant to name a few, he was able to develop a clear and distinctive culinary identity.

His cuisine reflects the inspiration he gathers from his experience, his passion for research and local ingredients: a state of constant renewal that, at the same time, remains profoundly tied to local tradition thanks to the inspiration of Valeria Piccini.
