Michelin female chef award winner Martina Caruso to host Masterclass in Phuket

Chef Martina will bring her Sicilian Journey to Phuket on November 29 and 30 with one exclusive Masterclass and two degustation dinners.

Martina is well-known as the Chef of Signum, but her passion for the culinary arts started early. Since she was a child, her father Michele (the former Signum chef) introduced Martina to the kitchen world, a world she quickly bloomed by learning from the best chefs in the business: Massimo Riccioli, Gennaro Contaldo, Antonello Colonna, Luciano Monosilio and as well as Gennaro Esposito, who has been bestowed two Michelin Stars during his career.

Martina’s talent has been recognised by various prestigious gourmet entities in Italy as well as Europe and she is now considered by eno-gastronomic journalists and insiders as the “enfant prodige” of Italian cuisine, notes the release by Tre announcing Chef martina’s imminent arrival to Phuket.

“Sharing the love of local ingredients and family recipes with an innovative twist guest Chef Martina Caruso and host Chef Claudio are eager to share their home flavors, parfums and delicate textures with the diners of Phuket,” the said the release.


The Masterclass and Lunch will be held on November 29.

The Degustation Dinner will be held on November 29 and 30.

There was a time when women could not own property or vote-feminists got that changed.  Progress is slow, sometimes it even takes a step back, but it does march on despite the best efforts of some to thwart it.

Christy, and easy example, a man, and woman, are walking down the road, a thug accosts  them, guess which one is expected to protect the other. Equal opportunity.. be buggered, we all know who is expected to.

Rorri_2 | 03 December 2019 - 11:10:47

Christy, you can't pick what suits you, and your arguement..."equal opportuanity" affects ALL facets of life, many, if not most, women prfer to have the own "groups," as they accept men and women are different, I can't help it if the minority, feminists, are trying to change, control, everyones life, if you don't believe me, just ask women.

Christy Sweet | 02 December 2019 - 18:55:15

Equality in opportunity is all that is needed-  weightlifting is hardly relevant but i will say women and men compete together in auto racing and equestrian sports- and often win. 

Rorri_2 | 02 December 2019 - 05:51:18

Christy... there can never be equality, the sooner feminists accept this the better off we will be.. eg male and female weightlifters competing against each other... or rugby or Aussie football.... get my drift.

And no, Michelin does not separate the awards by gender as the poorly written caption suggests- "Michelin Female Chef Award" 

Christy Sweet | 01 December 2019 - 15:40:45

Feminism is women being treating equally- such as jobs ads not allowed to specify male only  for engineers while "female only" lower waged secretaries are expected to fulfill  attractiveness standards. And chauvinism is not gender specific- look it up. Plenty of female chauvinists around. 

CaptainJack69 | 30 November 2019 - 17:25:08

Nope. I see the writers need to specify the chefs gender as a sign of ignorance and an unenlightened society. Sexism goes both ways and the objective must be neutrality or nothing at all. After all feminism is just the gender opposite of chauvinism.

Rorri_2 | 30 November 2019 - 16:21:28

Christy, have you EVER stopped to think some, if not many, females like to be acknowledged as females.. maybe you don't, but do not deny those that still like to be treated as females.

Kurt | 30 November 2019 - 12:07:41

Mhh, we also can experience this article as a compliment and a 'gender' professional promotion, I guess. Many times there are jokes about .."women in the kitchen'...   But when a lady professional exelleers in a mainly men environment it may be noticed. Bravo.

Why is this person's gender notable?  Please give the headline writer some guidelines on avoiding sexism.
