Massimo Bottura of three-Michelin-star restaurant Osteria Francescana announced that he will be live streaming his family dinners in his “Kitchen Quarantine” series on Instagram every day at 3p.m. (ET). The series will be broadcasted in English so it can reach as many people as possible. In the past episodes, he has already taught his followers his version of Thai curry, “bollito” salad, tortellini in creamy parmesan sauce (his signature dish) and an “everything Mac and Cheese” dinner.
The 57-year-old chef, who also runs Gucci Osterias in Florence and Beverly Hills, wanted to “share this joyful family experience with everyone connected around the world.” From his home country Italy, which is now considered the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak, Bottura answers questions from his viewers regarding his methods, ingredients and recipe—all for free.
This isn’t the first time Bottura held an online cooking class. In 2019 he also taught through Masterclass, with each session costing $90 each. His restaurant Osteria Francescana in Modena, Italy received three stars in Michelin’s 2020 Guide and is rated number one on the San Pellegrino list of best restaurants in the world.
