Since he was just 16, Chef Marko has been working in kitchens and he started with the amazing Don Alfonso near the island of Capri, Italy. Says the Chef of his early days in working with food – “In Italy, the love for good food and wine is part of the culture. It’s palpable in the feast-like servings and jolly gatherings among family and friends during every meal. When I started out in the kitchen, I drew inspiration from the best cuisines I’ve sampled in restaurants, in homes and even street food.”
