About chef Fabio Ciervo’s cuisine
The “food technologist”, as he likes to describe himself, has based his cooking philosophy around five key pillars:
– Well-being, thanks to new recipes created to fit contemporary lifestyles and to satisfy nutritional needs in a healthy way.
– Ingredients, through a careful selection of seasonal products from organic agriculture, thus allowing the characteristics of the ingredients to best express their natural properties.
– Taste, with the mix of flavours which, when perfectly balanced, enhance the food’s texture and guarantee its delicious taste.
– Innovation, through the continuous study of the latest scientific methodologies, approved by researchers and nutritionists, to improve the nutritional system.
– Art, aesthetics, creativity and design are highly valued by the chef. Each of his creations reveals its own character thanks to a clever combination of symmetrically-arranged ingredients and geometrical presentation of the dish.
About chef Fabio Ciervo
1979: Fabio Ciervo was born in Sant’ Agata de’ Goti, a small village in the heart of the Benevento province, nicknamed the “pearl of Sannio” for the beauty of its historical centre. He grew up cultivating two passions: cooking and sport. Two seemingly different activities, which however share the values of discipline and the spirit of sacrifice. This led to his interest in developing a nutritional system attentive to the physiological needs of the body, backed by scientific research.
At the age of 14, Fabio enrolled in Benevento’s hospitality school, where he began his career as a chef.
1998: Fabio graduated and decided to pursue his training abroad. In London, he worked as a commis chef with Adriano Cavagnini at the Italian restaurant of the Grosvenor House Hotel, and collaborated with Nico Ladenis. He also occasionally attended the workshops of the French gastronomy school, École Lenôtre.
2003: Fabio returned to Italy as executive deputy chef, at the demand of Adriano Cavagnini who wanted to work with him once again, but this time in the kitchen of Hotel Eden in Rome.
However, when the opportunity presented itself to work as a sous chef alongside Michel Roux (three Michelin stars since 1985) at the Waterside Inn, Fabio returned to England. He learned to balance the four fundamental flavours (sweet, salty, bitter and acidic) and in particular, mastered the difficult balance between acidity and sweetness which is fundamental to the success of a dish
2010 was the year of Ciervo’s return to Italy: Hotel Eden called upon him to lead the hotel’s gastronomic offer as executive chef and to manage a team of 30 people. At the end of 2012, at the young age of 32, the chef obtained his first Michelin star, a worldwide recognition that confirms the positive evolution of his work and the quality of his experience.
In November 2015, Hotel Eden closes for renovation work, Fabio Ciervo personally designs the kitchen. Measuring 200 m2, it is one of the most beautiful in the world with its incredible views over Rome and uses state-of-the-art technology and scientific instruments such as ultrasonic cooking.
In November 2017, only seven months after Hotel Eden’s reopening, the fine dining restaurant La Terrazza regained one Michelin star.
