About Us

Knowfood offer a unique reference point for information on the most important western food, drink, culinary traditions and others. Our concern is that there was not clear resource for interesting features and practical advice on this subject.

Founder of Knowfood is Chef Lino Montaruli, an Italian Executive Chef living in China from 1995. After many years of experience around China decide to create something that brings more than basic knowledge but also teaches those who would like to learn more about western food, starting from Mediterranean delicacies and some Healthy high-end gourmet food.

Chef Lino was concerned there were no clear resources where people can find interesting knowledge and practical advice on these matters.

A special Thanks go to: Xu Jingfen, Lawrence Sheed, Claire Wang, Montaruli Pasquale {cousin}, Claudia Chen and my wife Diana Xue.
