Chef Michele Cremonese

Chef Michele Cremonese was born in the beautiful town of Verona in the northern part of Italy. With family and relatives in the hospitality business, Michele decided at a young age to pursuit the culinary career. Inspired by his grandmother's recipes and his mother ability to make everything from scratch, his interest was all about the traditions of Italian cuisine. Once he moved to the United States, he first worked for several acclaimed restaurants in Los Angeles, until he decided to settle in Monterey, opening his pasta shop "Bigoli". Driven by the passion of making an authentic style of pasta, Bigoli is now known to be the best artisan producer of fresh pasta and ravioli in California.

Fun Fact: Bigoli is actually the name of a traditional pasta from the Veneto region of northeast Italy. Bigoli pasta is a thick spaghetti handmade with a "torchio" tool from the best durum semolina grown in Italy. It is slightly darker and denser than most pasta, and its surface has a rougher texture, perfect for encouraging sauces to cling - and the taste is sensational!
