Chef Silvia Regi Baracchi
Born in Cortona in the heart of the Valdichiana region of Tuscany, Silvia Regi Baracchi comes from a family of restaurateurs and grew up in direct contact with the hospitality world.
In 1989 she began her professional career with her husband Riccardo, opening their restaurant “Il Falconiere” (The Falconer), formerly the Orangery of the family villa.
In 1993, they opened the first nine rooms of the main villa and went on to transform all the annexes of the old family property to create their current elegant 5-star “wine resort”.
Her husband Riccardo and her son Benedetto have collaborated with the oenologist and agronomist Stefano Chioccioli to create a modern and dynamic wine company.
In 2002, the chef was awarded a Michelin star for her work and later had the honour of being appointed Regional Delegate of Tuscany for the Euro-toques Association guided by Enrico Derflingher.
Today “Il Falconiere” is part of the Relais & Châteaux Association and shares its philosophy.
In 2016 she published “Rosso di gusto, passioni in cucina” (Red of taste, passions in the kitchen), a book dedicated to the colour of passion with themed recipes.
Finally, the Chef has had important culinary experiences with many chefs on the international scene, bringing her Cortona cuisine to cities around the world such as Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou, Toronto, Warsaw, Riga, Helsinki and Brussels.
