CHEF ALESSANDRO PAVONI
Pavoni began his career in Brescia, in Italy’s north, working at Carlo Magno with the famous Iginio Massari and Giuseppe Maffioli and training at the Art, Science and Technological Centre of Food and at the Caterina de Medici Hospitality School with master chefs such as Frederic Bourse, Luigi Biasetto, Davide Oldani, Claudio Sadler and Achille Zoia.
Pavoni worked in various Michelin starred venues such as La Rotonde in France and the Two Michelin-starred Villa Fiordaliso on Lake Garda. Pavoni broadened his culinary horizons working in Bermuda at the famous Restaurant Lido before moving to Sydney permanently in 2003.
He took on the role of Executive Chef at Park Hyatt Sydney in 2005 managing a team of over 30 chefs before finally realising the dream of opening his own restaurant at the Spit, Mosman Sydney in 2009.
Alessandro is an executive member of the Council of Italian Restaurants in Australia (CIRA) and regularly takes classes at CIRA’s Annandale cooking school. “I love to embrace traditional recipes that have been handed down through the families of my region – and in particular my grandmother, who was a tremendous cook.”
Now Executive Chef at Spiedo Restaurant & Bar, Sydney, Australia Pavoni will have an opportunity to showcase these traditional recipes. Pavoni hopes everyone who comes to Spiedo will get a sense of ‘living Lombardy’, and what that means to him.
