From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 2:18 pm on 12 August 2019

In May this year foodies around the country were shocked to hear that the celebrated Roots restaurant in Lyttleton had closed its doors for good.

And what of its owner Giulio Sturla? The Chilean-born chef is back on the scene this month as part of American Express Restaurant Month, teaming up with Kira Ghidoni of The Grove to cook a six-course menu for this year's Chef Dining Series. 

He tell us why he closed the doors of his popular restaurant and what diners can expect during this degustation.
