Alessia Beltrame is an Italian chef who have been working and living between Copenhagen and London for the past 7 years. Her interest for food developed in childhood growing up in a family where almost everything they ate was organic, locally grown and handmade. After having studied American and Russian Literature in University she decided to follow her passion and she got a degree in Pastry and Baking at the Gambero Rosso Academy in Rome. After a few years working as a pastry chef in different Michelin star restaurants such as Noma in Copenhagen she decided to move to London looking to expand her culinary knowledge outside of the fine dining world, working as a savoury chef and doing research and development for a fermentation company. After a 3 years stint working with Ottolenghi’s alumni Sarit Packer and Itamar Srulovich at their Honey and Co. group she decided to focus on her freelance career studying holistic nutrition and working as a private chef for clients with autoimmune diseases in partnership with a doctor. She also writes articles and food columns for publications such as L’Officiel Italy and she is working on a cookbook about Friuli Venezia Giulia cuisine, where she was born.
Alessia believes that every person is different but that some rules should apply to everyone: eat the best available product around you, eat seasonal, get to know your suppliers and eat mostly plant based.
Masseria Moroseta already applies this philosophy on their daily basis offer and Alessia’s approach resonates with it.
