How Kepurp is born
The idea was born during a family trip to London. Walking through the city, the teenage daughters wanted to stop and eat the famous kebab. The chef, however, more attracted by the idea of trying the Anglo-Saxon gastronomic culture wanted to divert the girls' desire and playfully proposed to bring them to eat, on their return to Naples, the "kepurp". This word, although born as a joke, remained etched in the mind of the chef, who, after returning home, immediately set to work transforming the idea into facts: the octopus kebab (from the Neapolitan dialect “purp” meaning “octopus”) was born. Thanks to the successive publications of two books, in particular "The ingredients of a life", this new idea was allowed to quickly achieve success on social media, in newspapers and in national TV broadcasts, including television quizzes. Today he is certainly one of the Neapolitan street food stars, the kepurp is the Neapolitan answer to the Kebab.
