    Home Chef
    I'm trying to do some research.   I know there's been a backlash of Italian chefs using liquid nitrogen.  I need to know of any top/famous/celebrity ITALIAN chefs who are fans of and make great "technical" food using liquid nitrogen/molecular gastronomy.   They need to be born/bred Italian, but can be working anywhere in the world. Thanks for any help!!

    No idea if this helps, but I watched the first episode of Gordon Ramsey's Best Restaurant, and the winning restaurant (for that episode) was an Italian restaurant run by two brothers that did a lot of interesting things with liquid nitrogen. They aren't celebrity chefs, but a celebrity chef said they were the best Italian restaurant in England (for what that's worth).
