59/79 Per Person

Master Butcher & Chef Giuseppe Cagnoni

I grew up on a farm in Umbria, Italy, where I learned how to grow food and transform it. Working in my family butcher shop I developed the knowledge and expertise in the art of animal butchery and salumeria (charcuterie). After graduating from Culinary School, I went to London, England, where I worked in a very upscale restaurant and learned the English language. I relocated to the US in San Francisco CA, and I acquired a sommelier certification. Soon after I opened my own restaurant and a wholesale import business of organic italian food. After 15 years in California I decided to expand my business to the East Coast. I moved to Miami and opened another restaurant that specializes in charcuterie, named best new restaurant 2013 by ocean drive magazine. Today I am very excited to start this new adventure in Durham NC.
