Get to know me better
Just doing what I love....cook and taste
Graduated in Tourism Economics, I discovered passion for cooking starting to work in the family restaurant in Assisi, named Boccione.
The restaurant was opened in 1983 so I lived admiring my mother's deeds in the kitchen …
Since 2010 with my company Cooksapp I have dedicated myself to private chef services for clients throughout central Italy, mainly in Tuscany, Umbria and Amalfi Coast.
In 2011 my restaurant Boccione, where Cooksapp born, was prized as a Best Pizza for Pizza Italian Academy and in 2012 we were rated as one of best 100 restaurants in our beautiful region, Umbria. I was personally a professional teacher in Bakery and Cooking.
I achieved several degrees around food in particular Chocolate, Cheese, Food Pairing, Champagne, Fish and Mediterranean kitchen.
Currently I work and manage private chef services with my Cooksapp team. Of course I can't manage every single service on my own, so I built a team alligned. with my mission.
At Cooksapp we guarantee the quality and training of professional CHEFs as a result of a long selection process. We monitor their work, the level of menus and the choice of suppliers, as much as possible at KM0.
At Cooksapp we guarantee - through strict quality control - the protection of our guests and the healthiness and genuineness of our dishes.

We at Cooksapp also evaluate their work and your liking through our customer care service.
