CHEF FABIEN PEPPONITA
My history, my belief
I realized that I wanted to live cooking as a child, seeing my grandmother often in the kitchen, I immediately fell in love with the flavors and scents that only the kitchen can give.
I developed from the beginning a passion for Italian cuisine, remembering the unmistakable Milanese scallops with cream and butter sauce that my grandmother used to prepare.
Italian food, with its beauty and variety, immediately inspired me to become a chef of Italian cuisine, wanting to convey this love in my restaurant Pepponita Restaurant in Toulouse.Go to the creations
My commitment to the environment
In our kitchen we try to minimize waste as much as possible, using few packaging, avoiding wasting ingredients and cooking in small quantities where possible. In addition, we buy Italian products from suppliers present in Italy such as Orobica Food and we mainly supply from local producers.
In my restaurant we want to fully reflect Italian cuisine and be able to pass it on to French customers thanks to the choice of high quality, fresh and genuine products.
MY BEING A CHEF
Pleasure, Delicacy and Flavours
These are the terms that characterize the way I cook.
For me food is a pleasure, being able to cook it for people in order to convey new flavors and create delicious recipes without losing sight of the properties of raw materials and the freshness of the ingredients.
The Italian cuisine contains these three terms, so to make the dishes I don’t follow only the goodness of the products but also the trends and requests of my customers by introducing also vegetable dishes especially vegetarian, which in recent years are increasingly in demand and that I consider very important to include them in the menu of my restaurant.
