Cristina Bowerman is one of Italy’s most influential top female chefs. She has received as many awards for her cookery skills as for her performance as an entrepreneur and ambassador for social projects. Her creations are “a taste experience through ‘contamination’ between modern and traditional culinary language, the unmistakable touch of her way of seeing cuisine”, as she puts it. The menu at her Michelin star restaurant Glass Hostaria is constantly updated with new dishes, a result of her travels, studies, experimentations and seasonal inspiration. New recipes are added to unmissable “classics”, such as Amatriciana ravioli or Veal tongue pastrami with giardi-niera style vegetables, ciauscolo sauce and mustard ice-cream.
After studying Law and Graphic Design, Cristina Bowerman trained at the legendary Le Cordon Bleu college of culinary arts in Texas and then started her untypical career in 2004, as the title of her autobiographic cookbook reveals, “From Cerignola to San Francisco and back – My counter-current life as a chef”. Besides her restaurant Glass Hostaria in Rome, the Italian oversees seven other successful eateries with about 120 staff members. True to her leitmotif “Food as Culture and Social Sup-port”, she is involved in committees and foundations to preserve Italy’s traditional cuisine, the worldwide fight against hunger and diseases, and more social justice.
