Get to know me better
“Cooking is like love. It should be entered into with abandon or not at all.”
I am a professional Italian Chef with over 15 years of experience in hospitality most of them spent in Restaurants and Hotels. I am specialized in European and mediterean cuisine especially the Italian one. I worked in different countries as Norway, France, Holland, Austria and Greece but I was born and raised in Bologna, Italy, which is known as the Italian capital of cuisine and fresh pasta. I attended hospitality school and I refined my technique in the food valley between Bologna and Parma along side the best Chefs of Emilia-Romagna region as Igles Correlli and Bruno Barbieri ,then in 2014, I decided to bring my experience here to New Zealand. In my career I got numeros awards especially for my skills in preparing seafood, fresh pasta and desserts. I am the Head Chef of one of the best Italian restaurant in Auckland and in my spear time I enjoy to bring my experience directly to the private client.

an expression that crosses boundaries, it mixes and joins the culture of the country that hosts it and through the chef constantly innovates.
