Get to know me better
Very passionate chef keen to give you a remarkable culinary experience
I was born and raised in Lombardia, a region in northern Italy, in a family of restaurateurs, so hospitality and food is what my whole life is about.
I’m driven by passion and making fresh pasta, ravioli, gnocchi, all the authentic Italian goodness and sharing my knowledge about it, is what I love the most!
The kitchen of our family restaurant is where I learnt that if you want to enjoy an Italian meal you must feel at home!
Let me be your host in the comfort of your home and I'll bring Italy to your table!
For me, cooking is...
A lifestyle I guess! Other than being a passion, of course!
I learned to cook at...
I did study accounting. I had my culinary school at home! Mum and dad had always run different restaurants and I grew up in a kitchen.
A role model in the kitchen is...
Very hard to say. As Italian I couldnt not mention Massimo Bottura. I believe his way of presenting dishes Is fascinating. And surely my parents!
A cooking secret...
It’s definitely using fresh ingredients. Simplicity.
