About the author

Born and raised a farmer’s son in Mola di Bari, Pasquale Martinelli, our executive chef at Alloro, was surrounded by fishermen, farmers, and generations of food artisans for his entire life. He quickly took note of their passion for quality, carefully curated excellence, and the healthy, delicious, and sustainable meals that resulted from their efforts.

When founding Alloro, those notes proved advantageous and invaluable. Alloro’s preparation and cooking methods are deeply-rooted in the generational traditions of Puglia, the standard Mediterranean diet, and wisdom earned from Pasquale’s youthful days as a farmer’s son. As a personal chef, Pasquale has spent a quarter-century sharing his culinary philosophy and crafting beautiful meals from the finest ingredients available.
