Chef Giovanni Maffei grew up in an Italian family, where he learned at an early age that quality ingredients are an essential part of good living. As a child, he watched his mom, a butcher, prepare pastas, vegetables, and meals from scratch. His father, a master carpenter, always had a garden where the family would grow all the vegetables consumed throughout the summer, and tomatoes, which would be carefully turned into sauce for the winters.
Giovanni has more than 25 years of experience in the culinary world and a successful history of working in the hospitality industry. He is responsible for the day-to-day operations of culinary services, including personnel and financial performance as well as planning.
Giovanni is a graduate of the French Culinary Institute and has worked at notable restaurants, including Adour by Alain Ducasse, Andaz 5th Avenue, Hyatt hotels, Mondrian Soho, and, most recently, the Allegria Hotel in New York.
