From raw materials to culinary excellence
Creta Osteria and Pipero
Creta is the culinary entity at the core of Tenimenti d’Alessandro. Here the Chef Mirko Marcelli designs menu characterized by attention to raw materials, mostly selected within small local producers. His dishes contain references to local tradition following the new culinary technique that the cuisine has discovered in the last years. The menus are designed around the seasonality of the ingredients and change and update based on what the territory offers.
The respect for the territory
Traditions are essential. They are the historical memory of people. We believe however that traditions need to be supported by progress and innovation. Here at Creta we have tried to reach the ideal balance: using local raw material and giving a new face to the local traditional dishes. The result is delicious and never ordinary dishes that make you fill at home.
The enhance of the small production
Our wine list is the outcome of a careful selection of small natural wine producers spread in the world. This wine list, that we believe to be interesting and unique, was designed as a result of the stories of the producers and their passion for their work. It is a way to approach a different method of conceiving wine.
To design new dishes, I always get inspiration from the memories of my family home cuisine, the study of traditions and the generosity of earth. I try to bring on the table both tradition and innovation thanks to the techniques I developed in my years of experience in the restaurants I worked for. I like to spread the passion for my work to people through the creation of simple but tasty and original dishes.
