Executive Chef
If none of the above describes you, what are you?
Aurelio Barattini's restaurant, L'Antica Locanda di Sesto is in Lucca in Northern Tuscany in Italy. Aurelio's family became part of the history of the restaurant in 1920 but the setting has been a place of renewal and refreshment for several centuries dating back to 1368. Aurelio's relationship with food and food preparation started as a young child. He grew up in the kitchen where his grandmother and mother prepared foods for the restaurant. To mix with the Tuscan foundation to his cuisine he has a strong influence from the Emilia-Romagna Region where his paternal grandparents are from. His unique fresh pasta recipes are one reflection of that heritage. Aurelio and his restaurant are a distinguished part of the Lucchese / Tuscan / Italian Landscape. For the past 7 years Aurelio has been the featured cook for Lucca Province on an extensive list of promotional events around the globe. Since last may has begun,with Andee Sorenson of Travelling Native,Cooking classes of typical Tuscan food in private houses around the United States. But like much of the living scenery surrounding Lucca, his story and his message are still relatively undiscovered gems to most Americans.

Hi Aurelio,

Oh, I thought you were taking a class but you are teaching a class. Very nice. We would love to come to your restaurant in Lucca. My good friend was just in Lucca for a month doing a print project - she is an artist. The girl that went with her is a photographer and made a book out of her pictures of the trip. Maybe you will get a kick out of seeing it. Here is the link.

I'll look on your web site for the name of your restaurant. Perhaps they ate there.

I also noticed the name of your company - Native Cooking...? My company name is Native Food & Wine. How strange.

Anyway, I'm rambling, Cheers.

Oh how funny, I am from California. Are you by chance going to the CIA Greystone? I took a wine certification program there but went to culinary school in Boston.

We are coming to Italy last week of February and planning on staying in the country for 6 months or so if we can swing it. First month will be Rome but then we are looking for a place to stay for 3-4 months that is somewhat agricultural but still a big enough city to have trains and not need a car for daily life.

If you have any suggestions I'd love to hear them.
