Kitchen behavior consultant
Geradline is chef at Oli Gastronomia in Curitiba, elected the best bistro in Parana by gourmet magazine Gula. Voted the best chef in the state by the same magazine, Geraldine was invited by Marcos Jorge to teach cooking techniques and kitchen details to João Miguel and Carlo Briani (who interprets Giovanni, restaurant owner) to make their performances as true to life as possible. She also showed the actors how to handle the stove lighter, organize ingredients, how to hold utensils and even how dishes should be decorated. “ I even gave my two cents on script, went to market to show how ingredients are acquired and loaned my pots for the shooting,” the chef comments. João spent a lot of time cooking at Oli – one day Geraldine put pasta a putanesca on the menu just so that he could practice.
