About Chef Andrea Burzio 

Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort & Spa, Cebu welcomed Andrea Burzio as the new chef De cuisine in 2016 to lead the kitchen team of the resort’s Italian restaurant, Acqua. With his experience at one of the famous Michelin-starred restaurants in Italy, Chef Andrea brought all his passion for his craft, rooted in the belief that cooking is an art instrumental in creating meaningful relationships and communities.

Before joining Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts, Chef Andrea had previously worked with gourmet restaurants and boutique hotels in Italy, France, Switzerland, Thailand and Myanmar. In his earlier years, he was trained by Chef Stefano Gallo of the Michelin-starred Italian restaurant, La Barrique.

Chef Andrea grew up in the northern Italian city of Turin, and his cooking is heavily influenced by the Piedmont region’s rich geography, using ingredients from the valley, the sea and the forest. As the region is the closest to the France-Italy border, it also has hints of French cuisine.
