Vittorio Greco, Italian Master Chef at ITC Hotels, believes that the best way to learn about life and food is to travel

“I always try new techniques and constantly experiment to reach my own personal bar of excellence,” says Italian Master Chef Vittorio Greco, who is in charge of ITC’s Ottimo chain of restaurants – at ITC Maurya New Delhi, ITC Grand Chola Chennai and ITC Gardenia Bangalore. “I love to play with old favourites and my dishes are generally rooted in classic flavours. That being said, the plate is my playground and the world is my inspiration. I like to offer fun, playful renditions of the old favourites, in dramatic and colourful avatars.”
