Carlo Grossi is the son of much-loved Melbourne chef Guy Grossi and has inherited his father’s passion for Italian food and instinct for true hospitality. Since its opening in 2012 he has run Ombra, the salumi bar that’s the younger sibling-next-door to Grossi Florentino and Cellar Bar, but Carlo also works across all of the Grossi restaurants including their recently opened wine bar, Arlechin. Carlo grew up helping out in the kitchens of the family restaurants and has written Ombra, his first cookbook, in close collaboration with his father.
