My passion for cooking started when I was just a kid and I would get up early on Sunday mornings to cook fresh bolognese with my father. The kitchen was my playground, and creating dishes was my favorite game. Growing up in a family of cooks, this way of life inevitably chose me and has captivated me ever since.
I have been a professional chef for more than 30 years and have worked in many “osterie”, restaurants and exclusive hotels. My first job was in a fish restaurant in Padova, where I am originally from, when I was only 15 years old. Back then, we didn’t have all the modern appliances and gadgets and cooking was more of a classic, genuine experience that has marked me to this day. It was a very romantic way of preparing food!
