Who is MICHELIN Star Chef Peppe Guida?
9 May 2022 - Uqonic Chefs
“My hands in the earth and my eyes towards the sea,” is Peppe Guida’s philosophy when it comes to his craft. This self-taught and proud Italian chef tries to combine haut cuisine with the simplicity of traditionally inspired recipes. This is embodied in his two restaurants: MICHELIN Star restaurant Antica Osteria Nonna Rosa and Villa Rosa, La Casa di Lella.
Peppe Guida’s countryside house Villa Rosa is a dream come true for him, where you can not only taste the products directly from his vegetable garden, but also spend the night. Here you can wander through the biological garden overlooking the Vesuvius, where Peppe gets his inspiration for his dishes. All products harvested from the garden are used for his dishes – where past and present intertwine and represent the food history of the Mediterranean cuisine.
For Uqonic Chefs, Peppe wanted to share the flavours from his region with the people at home, wherever they are. Expect products from the Neapolitan region and from Peppe himself.
Antica Osteria Nonna Rosa*
Peppe Guida’s 1 MICHELIN Star restaurant Antica Osteria Nonna Rosa breathes authenticity. This regional and national gem is inspired by local traditions from the coast of Amalfi and Sorrento. The dishes are based on secret family recipes passed down to him by his mother and the cooking wisdom of local elders. Here you will find great traditional dishes characterized by a touch of creativity, elegance, and modernity.
How Peppe Guida’s menus are made
Peppe is all about creating a homely feeling for his guests, whether you visit his restaurant or order his Uqonic Chefs menus or dishes. He uses big, filling portions and uses his own products such as pasta, cheese, bread, tomatoes, and oil. All these ingredients are also used in his Uqonic Chefs dinner boxes. It is what makes his courses so distinctive.
Peppe Guida was very thoughtful about what people at home could do in their kitchens. His challenge: to make Neapolitan food and their way of eating available to anyone. He trained our team of chefs with poise and passion so we can translate his family feeling to your Uqonic Chefs experience at home.
