Get to know me better
An eternal curiosity about all things edible.
I am passionate about celebrating and fusing local flavors and cooking methods with a unique, modern approach. I believe that a dish should not be over-complicated - by choosing the highest quality ingredients, the natural flavors and textures burst through.
Where possible, I grow, forage, and catch my own ingredients, or source from farm-to-fork.
Having discovered the stove at an early age in the kitchens of my Italian neighbors in Philadelphia, I saw how food brings people together. Being a good chef comes from your heart, and I have a genuine passion for creating great guest experiences. Together with my wife, I am co-owner of The Butchery in Anguilla - a fine meat and provisioning store operating out of one of the island's oldest buildings.
For me, cooking is...
my greatest passion, whiskey is my greatest love, and cigars my greatest weakness.
I learned to cook at...
home in Philadelphia with my Italian neighbors, and went on to work in major hotels and restaurants around the world.
A role model in the kitchen is...
my kids - they keep it simple, and they know that great food comes from the heart.
A cooking secret...
is to use the highest quality, fresh ingredients to let the natural flavors burst through.
