Today's episode is Part 1 with Celebrity Chef Andrea Zagatti and we are bringing you a little luxury. He has cooked for the likes of Kanye West, Royal Families and the Chelsea Football Club. He has access to some of the finest wines in the world and has had experiences that have taken him all over. In this episode he talks of how he ditched the 24/7 working lifestyle stuck in a kitchen, and how he set up his own business, and then we discuss just a few of the wine events he has been privy to. What it's like to taste cult wines, many of us can only dream of, and what it's like to organise and cook for high-end wine events and dinners.
