Matteo Felter (27.04.1973) is chef de cuisine at the Grand Hotel Fasano, a 5-star luxury hotel on Lake Garda, more precisely in Gardone Riviera (Bs). Since 2007, he and his brigade have been in charge of the hotel’s entire restaurant offer, in particular the Il Fagiano restaurant, a space reserved for research and haute cuisine.
The decision to dedicate himself to the world of gastronomy came after his high school diploma and military service, when he decided to abandon his career as a surveyor and enrol in hotel management school. Although as a child he dreamed of becoming a sailor, Felter followed the passion for food so dear to his family, which has run a delicatessen and grocery shop in Salò (Bs) for generations. So he began working as a chef in his twenties, working in many renowned restaurants in the region and beyond, and honing his skills through internships with numerous Michelin-starred chefs, including Niederkofler, Perbellini, Berton and Fusari.
