Gian Piero Vivalda is the owner and Chef of Antica Corona Reale. “I spent my childhood in the valley of Cervere. My grandfather would take me fishing and woodcock hunting. When we returned home, we would cook what we had caught. Little by little, I got to know Piedmont, its scenery and the local produce. I gradually moved further afield, discovering the shores of Liguria and the nearby French Riviera. This was a revelation to me. Since then, I have never tired of repeating this journey whenever I have a little time to spare.”
