We have passed our first month of the Malaysia Movement Control Order (MCO) and the news of a further extension until 12th May 2020 has just dropped.

And in the effort to cope with self-confinement, many have turned to the art of cooking to express themselves and treat cooking as a therapeutic experience to help us balance out our emotions. While YouTube and Instagram have become our main source of reference, Gucci has also stepped up their game in the culinary field.

Together with Karime López, the Chef de Cuisine at Gucci Osteria, the brand's One Star Michelin Restaurant in Florence, Gucci has provided three stellar Michelin-worthy recipes that you can try your hands on at the comfort of your home.

1587704835478536 lucky fennel 2

(Linguine with Fennel Cream)

Chef Lopez: ”I thought of this recipe that uses fennel as a basic ingredient because it is a seasonal vegetable and because of all the stories and curiosities surrounding this vegetable. In Greek and Roman history, in fact, fennel was considered a symbol of strength and vigour and they believe it brought luck.

Some treatises on Ancient Rome reported how Roman gladiators added fennel to their dishes to be successful in the arena and when they won the fights, they were crowned with a garland of fennel. This is also the reason why - for the Gucci Osteria menu - we called this dish Lucky Fennel."

Chef Lopez: ” I chose this recipe because it's easy to make and it needs ingredients that we all have at home. Usually, we prepare this dish without gluten, but all-purpose “00” flour can also be used.

It is a fun recipe because you can vary the filling each time you make it using ingredients that you have in the fridge, such as vegetables or meat, and the colour of each sauce can be changed according to the vegetables or herbs used. Even more colours can be added! When we created this dish, it looked like an artwork by Pollock, so we decided to call it exactly that."



Datterino tomato sauce
• Yellow Datterino tomato 100g
• Extra Virgin Olive Oil 2 Spoons
• Brunoise cut garlic 5 g (finely diced garlic)
• Basil 2 leaves

Chard sauce
• Chard 100g
