Now, Aaron Wratten – Kingsley’s son – and his wife Maddalena Molli bring new experience to the time honored hostelerie. Aaron traveled to Paris for his culinary studies and then worked at several prestigious restaurants in New York City including “Aureole” under Charlie Palmer and “Restaurant Daniel” under Daniel Boulud, before becoming the Executive Chef at The Horned Dorset Primavera in Rincon, Puerto Rico.
Maddalena Molli hails from Rome, Italy, and grew up in the Architecture and Design Industry between Europe and New York City. The duo met through a project in Puerto Rico and has been a part of the hospitality business ever since.
