Meet the Team
Yoshihiro KigawaChef de Cuisine
Armed with years of training in Italian kitchens and under Michelin-starred masters, Chef de Cuisine Yoshihiro Kigawa brings a deep knowledge of his craft to PIGNETO. Menus are crafted through a careful process that draws on the landscape of ingredients, the skills of producers and the cultural background of dishes, along with more technical aspects such as nutritional profiles and the concentration of salt and sugar. Yoshihiro also finds creative inspiration in the myriad of shapes and colours around him, from fashion to art and architecture.
“For me, pure ingredients and thoughtful simplicity are the highest form of sophistication.”
Alessandro DeLeoMaestro Pizzaiolo
Hailing from the Italian city of Naples, Specialty Pizza Chef Alessandro Luca de Leo draws on his legacy to bring the finest traditions of pizza-making to PIGNETO. Building on authentic Italian techniques, Alessandro crafts pizzas best described as Neapolitan 2.0. In place of the standard 00 flour, he uses an innovative 0-type flour that is extremely pure and made with 100 percent Italian grains, unlike most brands in Asia which include a mix of foreign grains. This flour became available in Japan only last year, with Alessandro playing an instrumental role in bringing it to the country.
“Pizza is a way of life in Napoli. We’ve perfected the art over centuries – it’s in our blood. If you start making pizza in Napoli, it means you want to be the best.”
