3 Reasons to Travel with Giorgio Rapicavoli
The young and talented Giorgio Rapicavoli has won Chopped, is a two-time James Beard Award semifinalist, made Forbes’ “30 Under 30 List” and has been labeled 'Miami’s Hottest Chef.' Spending half his life in Italy’s Piedmont region, he’s long dreamed of sharing his second home to the world. He’s obsessed. And we can’t wait to see it through his eyes.
In the Family
Giorgio’s Italian mom taught him how to make Sunday sauce—that authentic, meaty gravy who’s best buddies with spaghetti and meatballs. Meanwhile, his dad is from Argentina, home of seared steaks and rich wines... all the components of the perfect meal.
At just 26, Giorgio won Chopped and impressed a judge so much that Giorgio was asked to come to New York to be chef de cuisine at their restaurant. Instead, Giorgio put his $10,000 prize money to work in Miami and started his own.
Elevated Stoner Food
This is the description of Giorgio’s restaurant, Eating House, where he serves up a brunch lauded for Tang mimosas and Captain Crunch pancakes. Keep in mind he’s cooked for Bill Clinton, Michael Jordan and Sammy Sosa—so, put emphasis on “elevated.”
