To achieve success, Germán Lucarelli started from the simple - the recipes of his grandmothers. This Argentine chef today has two restaurants in Maine, United States , and charges more than a million dollars a year. The road up there, however, was not easy.
A native of Hurlingham , in the province of Buenos Aires, when he finished high school he followed his family mandate and began college. The chosen career: Architecture at the UBA. For that, he moved to Belgrano, in Capital, to his uncle's house.
Her true passion, however, had been sucking her since a child, from the hand of her grandmothers . Maria Elena, her paternal grandmother, was Argentinian, but of Italian descent. Elena, on her mother's side, was a stew specialist. At 16, Germán already looked into the kitchens . So then, while studying Architecture, he began to work as a washing machine in a restaurant: he fell in love with that world. So much so that his vocation was reconsidered. He left everything to devote himself to his true passion: cooking.
Without the support of his family, he moved to a pension and began to work whatever it was, as he continued to get into that world he loved so much. Until his first big opportunity came: a season in Las Leñas with a great hotel entrepreneur. Then, other experiences came around the world: Asunción, Istanbul, Marbella, Paris and London. Finally, his final destination: the United States . On the way, he learned with the best: Cat Dumas and Martin Berasategui , among others.
After going through many kitchens, it was time to have your own. Together with his partner, Sante Calandri, in 2015 he opened The Ports of Italy , in Kennebunk, Maine. With Italian food, inspired by the recipes of her grandmothers, the place was a success. Over time, he decided to bet even more on his roots: he opened The Lost Fire BBQ , Patagonian Grill , specializing in Patagonian roast.
Both places are a resounding success and their story, the evidence that we never regret following our dreams.
