My journey to becoming a private, classically trained Italian chef began in 2004. After years spent behind a desk, working as a lawyer in my family’s law firm, I decided that it was time for a change. I had a dream to catch. It had always been my passion to cook Italian food and I wanted to devote myself full-time to the culinary arts. Working my way up through different positions at some of the best restaurants in the world-renowned Aosta Valley region of Italy, I gained invaluable experience and insights from the masters of Italian cooking. Eventually, I was able to successfully own and operate my own restaurants.
With 15+ years of experience in the hospitality and restaurant world under my belt, I decided to move to New York in 2017. I got my green card and started my own business, providing private chef services.
Currently, I provide a variety of services from weekly meal plans for families to catering events, such as dinner parties, birthday and holiday celebrations, special occasions and other events. I also provide individual at-home cooking lessons.
My cooking methodology has always been to work completely from scratch and with the freshest organic ingredients available, with a special eye to the seasonality of produce, as much as possible. Being brought up in Italy, as a chef, I have always been strongly committed to respecting traditional methods, cooking techniques and recipes. Cooking for New York families, meeting people with diverse backgrounds, food culture, culinary habits and tastes, has really helped me to expand my culinary horizons and give me the opportunity to reinterpret and adapt different types of cuisine from around the world with an Italian touch and feel.
