On Thursday 7 March, there is a very special evening at Locale Firenze.

Presented by Conosh and supported by S. Pellegrino & Acqua Panna, the evening will feature a menu of ten dishes - five per team - leading guests through all five senses, in a spectacular collaboration full of surprise, texture, sight, smell, touch and sound. Simone trained in the kitchens of Mugaritz before moving back to Italy and settling in his hometown of Florence.

Mugaritz is the only restaurant considered one of the 10 best in the world for 14 consecutive years, according to The World’s 50 Best Restaurants list and has held two Michelin Stars since 2005.

Simone Caponnetto

Simone credits his time spent there as a defining period of growth as a chef, where he learned how to fully utilise his senses in creating dishes using techniques and ingredient combinations he had never encountered before. In his constantly evolving menus at Locale Firenze, Simone melds the finest Tuscan ingredients with the techniques and thought processes he learned during his time at Mugaritz. He is delighted to welcome his mentor, Andoni Luis Aduriz for this event.
