About Stefano's Restaurant
Cucina Povera is a term that derives much of its essential meaning from the Italian art movement of the 1960’s titled arte povera.
This term refers to the use of simple everyday objects from a working life to make compelling art; using fresh ingredients in season to prepare simple
but flavoursome dishes is also a thousand-year old, quintessentially Italian art.
I stumbled into cooking perchance relying on memory and instinct to create the food I serve.
The conventional belief is that the use of ‘poor’ ingredients to prepare delicious dishes can constitute a money-saving exercise.
On the contrary the practice of ‘cucina povera’ is essentially an intense labour of love requiring time, patience, creativity and commitment to the freshness and integrity of the produce.
I am not interested in excess or in the use of any ingredient superfluous to achieving full flavor through the simplest means.
