Executive Chef Gentian Shehi

Chef Gentian Shehi

The new star in Florence

His passion for cooking began after middle school, when he enrolled at the hotel school in Brindisi. After the first working experience in a restaurant in Puglia, he started travelling and working around Italy in Restaurants, Hotels and Resorts. After some experience abroad,he decided to move to Florence, where he gained experience at the Four Seasons in 2008 and later as a Chef for Intercontinental Hotels at the Holiday Inn of Florence for 3 years. In 2011, while already working as a Cooking Instructor at Apicius at the Florence University of the Arts, he began his experience as a Sous Chef at St. Regis Florence first with the “Enoteca Pinchiorri” and then with the Chef Valeria Piccini at the Winter Garden By Caino with which he collaborates closely since 2013.

A state of constant renewal

Thanks to his background, his skills and an extensive experience 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 remains profoundly tied to local traditions thanks to the inspiration of famous chef Valeria Piccini, with whom a successful collaboration has started in 2013.
