Massimiliano Alajmo

Italian chef Massimiliano Alajmo – the youngest chef ever to be awarded 3 Michelin stars – created Il Gusto per la Ricerca in 2004 to fund research into children’s neoplastic diseases. Each year, the foundation hosts a prestigious culinary dinner – bringing together some of Italy’s most renowned chefs – to raise hundreds of thousands of Euros for the cause. This year, they have also launched a unique digital initiative – Tavoli Trasparenti – which sees 300 top restaurants backing the cause, with the price of the meal being donated when diners book online.
