Meet Jamal, Owner and Chef of Poggio di Gaville
Ten years ago, I decided to completely change the course of my life. I left my job in commerce to pursue my dream: open up an "agriturismo" in Chianti, living in close contact with nature and with people, giving more space to my passion - cooking - which is also the source of my energy.
For me, cooking represents an ongoing search for new flavors, new tastes, new experiences.
My hope is that all my guests are satisfied and impressed with the creative versions of Tuscan dishes I present before them, exclusively using fresh local, organic ingredients and served either in the restaurant or garden when weather permits. The villa is decorated with objects I've acquired in my travels in over 48 countries across the world so, in the end, this reflects the intercultural philosophy and spirit I've sought to create in the agriturismo.
I wholeheartedly invite you to become one of our guests and enjoy the unique experience in hospitality, relaxation and pleasure we can provide. Have a look to my travel-recipe book “Living with Taste”!
