He was not just a chef, he was an artist, he conjured up dishes that seduced us, that delighted us. He wasn't just a chef, he was a friend, he gave us his ear, his heart, and his laughter.
He loved his kitchen more than anything, he gave it his soul, his hands, his voice. He loved his guests like a family, he offered them his home, his restaurant, and his happiness.
We weep for him, we feel his loss, we bear his grief, we cherish him, we honour him, we thank him. He lives in our memories, in our flavours, in our love.
We would like to express our deepest condolences to his family and stand with them at this difficult time. Andrea will live on in our hearts and we will honour his memory.
The memorial service for Andrea Fusco will take place on 6 December at 10:30 am in the small chapel at the market in Lagoa. Andrea will be buried in Italy at a later date.
