We're still collecting donations

On the 30th May 2022 we'd raised £3,473 with 37 supporters in 35 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

A bit of history.

I came to London in 1997. I studied graphic design and worked in fine dining to pay my bills. Working with those great chefs I started picking up my grandmother's passion for cooking.

I've always been very creative and passionate, it was just a matter of learning skills and technique, and I still do to this day.

Working in fine dining gave me the chance to discover the wine world too, and in 2009 I became Sommelier A.I.S. I also achieved the W.S.E.T. advanced level and knowledge in SAKE a few years after.

During my years in London, I managed a few fine dining restaurants and a few wine bars and founded on the side a wine importing company, Il Tastevin Ltd, starting with one single producer and now importing 15.

In January 2017, I launched www.wineandtruffle.co.uk, which is my way to offer the public my knowledge and passion for great food and wine.

For me, the way to achieve this is to only import wine from small wineries, mainly family-run, my truffle exclusively from Italy and to offer a private chef service that became part of the business.

I opened a couple of popups during the lockdown and organised dinners on a boathouse when it was possible to go out again.

I also wrote a couple of promotional recipe books about black and white truffle, which will find in the rewards.

What's next?

The next step of this amazing journey is to open a physical location where I can offer a selection of directly imported organic, natural, biodynamic or sustainable wines, fresh truffle and truffle products, and delicious food made by me with passion and love.

That's why I'm here asking you to help me fulfil my dream and life-changing project.

In exchange for your financial support, I'm offering several rewards, from vouchers to discounted membership and dinners (I cook), either at your home or at one of our events. If you're interested in becoming a partner, please get in contact, and I'm happy to discuss equity options.

Testimonials:

Marcello organised a memorable dinner, combining genuine Italian ingredients with cooking mastery. Risotto with Castelmagno cheese and Tiramisu were to die for. A dinner like this at our home beats any restaurant, hands down!

Aldo (The Floow - Founder/CEO)

I have known Marcello since 2016, has created the brilliant Wine&Truffle in 2017, and I have bought the most fabulous wine from him ever since. He has always been so attentive to my needs and accommodating that customer service is off the charts. 

Peter (Tom Ford, Senior Vice President of Menswear)

Rarely in London, if ever, you can enjoy and appreciate better wines at what is probably the best price to quality ratio than those the "Wine&Truffle" offers and proposes. My drinking experience has always been lasting and superb, and my bank account barely touched. Marcello is an inspiration, a great advisor and a true connoisseur of wines. I can say this with confidence and true appreciation.

Francesco (Investment Banker)

I had such a wonderful experience booking Marcello for lunch with friends. From beginning to end, Service and attention to detail were exceptional. The food was delicious, super tasty and presented beautifully. It felt like having our own Michelin Star chef at home! 

We will be DEFINITELY booking him again. Five stars service and food.

Natalia (Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst)

Thank you, Wine&Truffle, for the expert wine pairing ideas, delicious truffle recipes and access to exclusive offers. The Service and attention to detail are always exceptional.

Terence & Polona (Pop-up Shop Customers)

Anyone with a love of Italian wine will be delighted to discover Wine&Truffle. Marcello Muiesan has a deep knowledge and passion and is putting together a list of wonderful wines from a growing number of small high quality producers who share his passion.

Marcello offers unparalleled service and is happy to advise on food pairings well as wine selection.

Paul (Stock Broker)

What a delightful evening. Thank you for such a delicious dinner and the excellent wine pairing and hosting. Very happy customers and we're definitely doing that again.

Angela (Private Chef Agency Customer)

Best Ceviche I (and everyone else) had ever had! I would definitely recommend this menu if you love fish, each course was exciting and delicious. Butter-soft fish that melts in the mouth.

Beatrice (Private Chef Agency Customer)

Marcello is an exceptional chef with excellent communication skills and a gentleman like attitude, he prepared everything ahead of time and also adjusted a last-minute dietary restriction. We really liked our experience with him!

Morgane (Private Chef Agency Customer)

We enjoyed the whole dinner! From the excellent food to the friendly service, we loved the experience.

Flavie (Private Chef Agency Customer)

Un po' di Storia.

Sono venuto a Londra nel 1997. Ho studiato grafica e ho lavorato in ristoranti di qualita' per mantenermi. Lavorando con quei grandi chef ho iniziato a raccogliere la passione di mia nonna per la cucina.

Sono sempre stato molto creativo e passionale, ed è stata solo una questione di apprendere tecniche e fare esperianza, cosa che faccio ancora oggi.

Lavorare nell'alta cucina mi ha dato la possibilità di scoprire anche il mondo del vino e nel 2009 sono diventato Sommelier A.I.S. Ho anche conseguito il W.S.E.T. livello avanzato e ho fatto un corso introduttivo sul SAKE alcuni anni dopo.

Durante i miei anni a Londra, ho gestito alcuni ristoranti di qualita' e alcune enoteche, ho fondato una società di importazione di vino, Il Tastevin Ltd, iniziando con un solo produttore fino ad arrivare ai 15 attuali.

1650813518_680x450_bottles.jpg

A gennaio 2017 ho lanciato www.wineandtruffle.co.uk, che è il mio modo per offrire al pubblico la mia conoscenza e la mia passione per l'ottimo cibo e vino.

Per me, il modo per raggiungere questo obiettivo è importare solo vino da piccole cantine, principalmente a conduzione familiare, il tartufo esclusivamente dall'Italia e offrire un servizio di chef privato che è diventato parte dell'attività.

Ho aperto un paio di negozi temporanei durante il lockdown e organizzato cene su una barca quando e' stato possibile uscire di nuovo.

Ho anche scritto un paio di libri di ricette sul tartufo bianco e nero, che troverete nei rewards.

1650813062_680x450_location.jpg

Cosa viene dopo?

Il prossimo passo di questo fantastico viaggio è aprire una location permanente dove posso offrire una selezione di vini biologici, naturali, biodinamici o sostenibili importati direttamente, tartufo fresco e prodotti al tartufo e una cucina fatto da me con passione e amore.

Ecco perché sono qui per chiederti di aiutarmi a realizzare il mio sogno e progetto di una vita.

1650813033_680x450_food.jpg

Come puoi aiutarmi?

In cambio del tuo supporto finanziario, offro diversi premi, dai buoni da spendere sul nostro website, alle membership scontate, e alle cene a casa tua o in uno dei nostri eventi.

La maggior parte di questi premi sono destinati a chi vive in Inghilterra, ma ci sono comunque premi che posso spedire ovunque, via email o posta.

Testimonials:

Marcello ha organizzato una cena memorabile, combinando ingredienti italiani genuini con maestria culinaria. Risotto al Castelmagno e Tiramisù da morire. Una cena così a casa nostra batte qualsiasi ristorante, senza dubbio!

Aldo (The Flow - Fondatore/CEO)

Conosco Marcello dal 2016, ha creato il geniale Wine&Truffle nel 2017 e da allora ho acquistato da lui il vino più favoloso. È sempre stato così attento alle mie esigenze e accomodante che il servizio clienti è fuori dagli schemi.

Peter (Tom Ford, vicepresidente senior dell'abbigliamento maschile)

Raramente a Londra, se non mai, si possono gustare e apprezzare vini migliori a quello che probabilmente è il miglior rapporto qualità prezzo rispetto a quelli offerti e proposti da "Wine&Truffle". La mia esperienza con il bere è sempre stata duratura e superba, e il mio conto in banca è stato a malapena toccato. Marcello è un'ispirazione, un grande consigliere e un vero intenditore di vini. Posso dirlo con sicurezza e vero apprezzamento.

Francesco (agente di investimenti)

Ho avuto un'esperienza così meravigliosa prenotando Marcello per un pranzo con gli amici. Dall'inizio alla fine, il servizio e l'attenzione ai dettagli sono stati eccezionali. Il cibo era delizioso, super gustoso e presentato magnificamente. Sembrava di avere a casa il nostro chef stellato! Lo prenoteremo SICURAMENTE di nuovo. Servizio e cibo da cinque stelle.

Natalia (analista per investimenti alternativi)

Grazie, Wine&Truffle, per le professionali idee di abbinamento dei vini, le deliziose ricette al tartufo, e per l'accesso a offerte esclusive. Il servizio e l'attenzione ai dettagli sono sempre eccezionali.

Terence & Polona (clienti del popup)

Chiunque ami il vino italiano sarà felice di scoprire Wine&Truffle. Marcello Muiesan ha una profonda conoscenza e passione e sta mettendo insieme una lista di vini meravigliosi da un numero crescente di piccoli produttori di alta qualità che condividono la sua passione.

Marcello offre un servizio impareggiabile ed è lieto di consigliare abbinamenti gastronomici e selezione di vini.

Paolo (agente di borsa)

Che serata magnifica. Grazie per una cena così deliziosa, l'ospitalita', e l'eccellente abbinamento cibo vino. Clienti molto soddisfatti e lo faremo sicuramente di nuovo.

Angela (cliente dell'agenzia di chef privati)

Il miglior ceviche che io (e tutti gli altri) avessi mai assaggiato! Consiglio vivamente questo menu se ami il pesce, ogni portata era eccitante e deliziosa. Pesce morbido come il burro che si scioglie in bocca.

Beatrice (cliente dell'agenzia di chef privati)

Marcello è uno chef eccezionale con eccellenti capacità comunicative e un atteggiamento da gentiluomo, ha preparato tutto in anticipo e ha anche regolato una restrizione dietetica dell'ultimo minuto. Ci è davvero piaciuta la nostra esperienza con lui!

Morgane (cliente dell'agenzia di chef privati)

Ci siamo goduti l'intera cena! Dal cibo eccellente al servizio cordiale, abbiamo adorato l'esperienza.

Flavie (cliente dell'agenzia di chef privati)
