TONY LO COCO

  • chef atI Pupi*
  • Bagheria (PA), Italy

Tony Lo Coco, born in 1974, patron chef at restaurant I Pupi in Bagheria, Palermo: his passion for cooking urged him to work in the kitchen since he was a child, while destiny draws him to Laura Codogno, now his wife and business partner, the daughter of the owners of one of the most famous pastry shops in Sicily. The opening of Cozzo dei Ciauli, a high profile catering location is the first step into the restaurant world; in 2009, the second and essential step: the Lo Cocos open I Pupi, which in November 2014 conquers its well deserved first Michelin star and is named after two grotesque and inspiring statues decorating the walls of the adjacent Villa Palagonia. Very popular Italian chef in Italy and abroad; born and raised in the enchanting sea villages east of Palermo, he favours seafood ingredients and his signature piece is stigghiola di tonno, a fish interpretation in which he uses tuna instead of lamb entrails for this typical street food from Palermo.
