Classic Sicilian with a Contemporary Italian French Twist
I'm an Italian chef that's been cooking for a total of 20 years, starting at the age of 11, trained to be a classic Sicilian chef by my grandmother in New York City. Since then I've been studying different worldly cuisines such as Thai, Indian, Southern, Mexican, Chinese, Japanese, & French. I competed on the world's biggest cooking competition, MasterChef US starring Gordon Ramsay, & took home the trophy. I believe in using only the best ingredients, & when catering across the world I make sure to support & use local ingredients from local farmers markets.
