Our chef, Charles, grew up in Avignon. He fell in love with risotto on trips across the border to Piedmont.
Since then, he hasn’t stopped cooking and experimenting.
Our vibrant, everyday food, is inspired by one of Charles’s culinary heroes: an Italian ‘Mamma’, who runs an agriturismo in Aosta.
She makes her own wine, grows her own vegetables and is constantly perfecting her sauces.
Charles experimented with his ‘fast food’ risotto over 100 times in 6 months before Mamma gave it her approval as worthy of its Piedmont heritage.
We opened our first café, called Risotto & Co., in Avignon in 2012. Thanks to customer feedback our range has grown to include everything from handmade gluten-free pasta to hearty soups to homemade juices and so much more.
We’re now called Vivotto – inspired by Piedmont, made with the passion of Provence. It’s cooking sans frontieres.
