Inspired by the family, Chef Forlino started his culinary career at the family-owned restaurant "Forlino". Chef Forlino creates his personal way of cooking with a mix of the four regions in the northern Italy covering Piemonte - Liguria Lombardia - Emilia Romagna. Chef Forlino's career spans from working in Italy, America, England and Singapore. He was the Executive Chef at One Fullerton, Singapore and more recently decided to venture his own restaurant "No Menu", which is one of the must-go eateries in Singapore.

The flavors of Piedmont reach peaks in autumn, when the harvest is in and wooded slopes from the Alps to the Apennines supply game, mushrooms and white truffles, whose magical aromas enhance pastas and risottos, meats and cheeses.
