Ever dreamt of being the head chef at your favorite football club? Milan’s Michele Persechini has been doing just that since 1988.

With the immense popularity of cooking shows and the growing number of soccer-focused sports documentaries out there, it’s probably only a matter of time before we see a behind-the-scenes series that’s focused on a club’s kitchen. If this five-minute video focusing on AC Milan’s chef is any indication, it’ll be one helluva show.

If you’ve ever dreamt of becoming the chef for your favorite club, the bad news — as revealed by Milan’s Michele Persechini — is that your day typically begins at 6 a.m. and lasts until 9:30 p.m. The good news, as evidenced by the fact that Persechini has been with the club since 1988, is that it’s one of the coolest, most rewarding jobs on the planet.

For over 20 years now Persechini has been in charge of keeping the Italian giants well-nourished, and over that period he’s celebrated eight Serie A titles and five UEFA Champions League victories with the likes of Arrigo Sacchi, Fabio Capello, Carlo Ancelotti, Paolo Maldini, Franco Baresi, Andriy Shevchenko, Filippo Inzaghi and Kaká. 

As you might expect, Persechini is loaded with stories, memories, inside knowledge and he makes some delicious looking Italian food.
