Jacopo Avigo, a chef from the Pianura Padana region of Lombardy in Italy, has joined JW Marriott Chandigarh as its Italian chef de cuisine.

Having a rich experience of 12 years in managing fine dining, and expertise in Italian cuisine, he is known for refining the art of cooking, developing impressive menus and preparing culinary dishes influenced by culturally diverse regions around the globe.

In his new role, Avigo has been entrusted with heading the operations of Oregano, the iconic Italian speciality restaurant at JW Marriott Chandigarh.

His first task will be to oversee the relaunch of Oregano in an all-new avatar, encompassing a new décor and an entirely new menu curated by him.

Prior to joining JW Marriott Chandigarh, Avigo worked in properties like Marriott Suites at Pune in India and in various other countries, including Germany, England and Spain, as well as different locations within Italy.

While always carrying Italian culinary traditions close to his heart, he also embraced the cultures of other places with an open mind. This vast exposure has helped define his culinary approach, enabling him to design the new menu of Oregano, that offers both traditional and modern Italian cuisine.

Abiding by the philosophy of respect for ingredients, Avigo, who practices the concept of zero-waste cooking, believes that respect and care for ingredients is the secret recipe for an unforgettable culinary experience.

At the same time, this savvy Italian culinary maestro loves to experiment with concepts like molecular gastronomy and spherification.

Besides being a culinary artist, Avigo is equally adept in supervising all aspects of kitchen management, including monitoring food production and aesthetic presentation of food and beverages, given his in-depth understanding of health, safety and sanitation. He also knows the nuances of quality management systems, food safety management systems and HACCP (hazard analysis and critical control points).

Backed by an iconic brand like Marriott International and the appeal of the region’s pioneering hospitality destination, JW Marriott Chandigarh, he is all set to rekindle the region’s romance with Oregano, North India’s much-loved Italian speciality restaurant.
