Cristian Marino has criticised the trend of diners who appear to be more interested in photographing their food than eating it in the restaurants.

The Instagram celebrity chef and a Chef Consultant from Italy said the issue had been discussed in his kitchen but that he has had to resist the temptation to intervene because he does not want to upset his customers.

“In Dubai, we’ve debated this for several years now – even in Italy. If we say to people, ‘Your food’s going cold’, you put up a barrier between your diner and you,” says Cristian Marino.

“Social media is such a big part of our lives, our sight has become almost the more important sense rather than what we smell or taste. If I see something beautiful like clouds, I try to be in the moment, then take a picture afterwards.” – Cristian Marino.
