Renowned chef Davide Oldani came to Manila in January to share his world of flavor through the recently opened FOO’D by Davide Oldani at Shangri-La The Fort, BGC. 

“My Cucina Pop comes from the desire to blend the essential with the well-made, to create something good that is accessible, to combine tradition with innovation. I am convinced that the greatness of Italian cuisine lies not only in the variety and flavors, but also in its openness to continuous re-interpretation,” shared Oldani, who has also lent his delft touch to designing his own line of utensils and dishes. 

For Lavazza, the premier Italian coffeemaker, Oldani designed the espoon and ecup, which were true innovative pieces that aimed to enhance the flavor of coffee. In addition, Oldani partnered with Kartell, another renowned Italian design company, to fashion his first line of tables that redefined form and function.

But beyond designing, Oldani has also inspired an entire generation, sharing his unique insight and fresh ideas as one of Samsung Club des Chefs and as an ambassador of Mercedes Benz and Telecom Italia Mobile (TIM). Oldani’s influence and reach is indeed wide and deep, having transformed culture and the culinary world. Today, it’s continuing to grow beyond expectation, making its way across the European border and into the Philippine culinary world.

Launched in December 2016, FOO’D by Davide Oldani is the new culinary destination by Foodee Global Concepts, the same authority that introduced Food Hall by Todd English, Pound by Todd English, Hook by Todd English, Tim Ho Wan, MESA Filipino Moderne, and Sunnies Café.

 “The aesthetics of FOO’D by Davide Oldani is minimal, but it’s enveloped by the warmth of Italy. I chose the Philippines to become the home of my first restaurant outside of Milan, because it’s a country with great economic development. I was lucky to have met talented entrepreneurs like Eric and Rodolfo e Nicolò and to bring my vision to life,” he said. “Here at FOO’D by Davide Oldani we combine the highest quality (of ingredients) with an affordable price for the Manila market.”
