Head of Culinary Research and Development at Nordic Food Lab
Roberto Flore is originally from Seneghe, a small mountain village in Sardinia - he joined the Nordic Food Lab in 2014. He was first introduced to the Lab when Josh, Ben and Andreas came to Sardinia researching Casu Marzu, a local cheese inhabited by the larvae of the Cheese Fly. Roberto has been making food since the age of 4 and his entire life has been surrounded by agriculture, foraging, cooking and food production. He has also studied agronomy.
Roberto is a man of Sardinia, home to the famed Casu Marzu cheese, and it is in this context that we first encounter him in the BUGS documentary. He goes on to become the Head of Culinary Research and Development, a position he still holds.
