Chef Egidio Website

Instagram, Portfolio

Award-winning Italian chef Egidio Latorraca hails from Milan has captured key kitchen positions at restaurants and renowned hotels, such as Mariott, Rocco Forte Hotels, The Kerry Hotels, Hilton, Belvedere, Vanetian, Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi (the first Sofitel Legend hotel), and Intercontinental.

Chef Egidio approached us through our Shanghai office for a revamp of his personal portfolio site. This required us to work with new assets as the site needed new videos and photos to match. Due to lack of access to new material due to the Covid pandemic shutting down kitchens, we decided to re-edit past content and shoot new material.

Cooking endless dishes everyday with a camera crew at his disposal means a lot of imagery. Chef Egidio presented us with too many great shots and stories, we spent a great deal of time to select only a fraction of the best for the website. Other content we had to create constrained with travel limitations due to the Covid pandemic at the time.

We started discovery with a custom design in mind, presented several mockups and directions that turned into a finalized modular set of custom layouts for the site. These custom layouts came alive after we integrated some radical customized javascript and a modern state-of-the-art Wordpress back-end CMS for content management. The final result was a fine dish of design and code to showcase the chef's culinary work. An official website that's built for an increasingly mobile obsessed world.
