The 2020 Italian Michelin Star Guide has been announced and this year's edition includes a female Mexican chef! We're talking about Karime López, who is the chef de cuisine at Gucci Osteria and the only woman included on the list.

On its Instagram account, the restaurant congratulated chef Karime: “celebrating its first @michelinguide Star, awarded today, #GucciOsteria da Massimo Bottura enters the 2020 Italian Michelin Star Guide, just two years after opening. Chef de cuisine Karime López @karylmt is the only woman chef among the new Italian entries to #guidamichelinit.”

Gucci Osteria also praised López's take on traditional Italian cuisine: “her menu for the restaurant challenges the traditional perception of Italian cuisine, creating playful takes on classic dishes.”

This award is a tribute to the @gucciosteria team and to all the people who are involved and supported us. We all share the same passion and commitment to what we want to achieve. Huge thanks to @massimobottura @laratgilmore and #MarcoBizarri for believing and trusting us. Now we will continue to work even harder than before.”
