Niko Romito, “European Chef of the Year Award” by Dekton®
January 14, 2020
The ultra-compact surface, Dekton® by Cosentino, is the sponsor of the European Chef of the Year Award at the Reale Seguros Madrid Fusión 2020 International Congress.
This collaboration marks the thirteenth edition of the event with Cosentino – and its designer and interior and exterior architecture brands – as the official sponsor and supplier of worktops of this renowned event in the global culinary calendar.
What’s more, in the spirit of a tradition started in 2014, Dekton® by Cosentino will sponsor the “Chef of the Year Award”, one of the most prestigious honours to be awarded during Madrid Fusión.
In 2020, the organisation will award the honour to Niko Romito, the Italian chef of the Reale Restaurant, located in the city of Castel di Sangro (Abruzzo, Italy).
Having been awarded three Michelin stars in only seven years, Niko Romito is known as the king of minimalism with his pure and simple cooking style, in which essential ingredients and a balance of flavours are key. Romito initially studied to be an architect, but his admiration for his family’s trattoria has turned him into one of the best chefs in Italy and the world. His restaurant is currently listed as one of the world’s top 100 restaurants.
