I like to experiment, but I also believe there is nothing new under the sun. I reinvent and reinterpret traditional recipes. Perfection doesn’t exist – but extraordinary recipes do

Sergio Mei

Executive Chef

For European epicureans, the name Sergio Mei is synonymous with excellence. That’s excellence as a professional in the kitchen and as a person of humility, sincerity and wisdom. So of course, the chef’s growing fans can’t get enough. With that in mind, Mei, executive chef at Italy’s Four Seasons Hotel Milano, has launched a new blog to introduce a wider group of food lovers to his smart and simple philosophies on cooking.


I Mei Sapori – Mei’s Flavors — will give fans a look behind the scenes of the hotel’s cooking school and in the kitchen of La Veranda, with luscious photography of some of the chefs’ most sought-after dishes. It will include downloadable recipes with wine pairing notes, videos, a reference dictionary and news. You can also get advice and tips from the chefs, plus sign up for courses and events. Buon Appetito! —Michelle Pentz Glave
