B orn in General Pico, a town in the province of La Pampa, Rapretti got a university degree as a Chemical and Biological Analyst and graduated as a professional chef from the IAG (Instituto Argentino de Gastronomía). He gained vast regional experience and consolidated his career as a chef by working at a great number of restaurants, such as Penélope (owned by Catalonian Joan Coll)), Gran Bar Duzón, and many other establishments in Ushuaia, Comodoro Rivadavia, Calafate, and so on.

Rapretti is also the vice-president of Puerto Madryn’s Association of Hotels, Restaurants, Bars and related activities, and the driving force behind Chucaro – a group of chefs from Chubut whose aim is to consolidate the national cuisine.
