COMO Maalifushi invites guests to experience ‘a taste of Tuscany’ as Chef Giovanni Luca Di Pirro takes them on a gastronomic COMO Journey from 4 to 12 December.

Chef Di Pirro is the Executive Chef of COMO Castello Del Nero in Italy. The week-long residency will offer guests the unique opportunity to explore the traditions and flavours of Tuscany against the breath-taking natural beauty of the Maldives. 

Chef Di Pirro will be hosting several events from Cocktail Conversations to Chef Tables and Beach Barbecue dinners to share with guests his culinary experience and ethos, while showcasing the flavours of the sea with a unique Tuscan twist. A highlight of the COMO Journey will have guests starting the day fishing with Chef Di Pirro to catch their own fresh seafood. Following the morning fishing adventure, guests will enjoy a captivating cooking demonstration and a sumptuous lunch prepared by the chef himself.

Chef Giovanni Luca Di Pirro’s cooking philosophy is a blend of three unique culinary backgrounds; Romagnolo by birth, Abruzzese by descent, and Tuscan by residence and adoption. He gained a wealth of experiences over decades of culinary training and working as a chef in various prestigious establishments; experiences that have cemented his passion for the cultures and traditions related to food and local products. 

Under his direction as Executive Chef, La Torre at COMO Castello Del Nero was awarded a Michelin star. His cooking philosophy is inspired by Tuscany, using the local produce from the region to inspire creations that highlight the purity, quality and freshness of flavours for each season.
