THE ART OF ITALIAN DINING
Born and raised in Florence, Italy, I discovered the passion for cooking at a very early age. Always on airplanes, traveling around the globe with my family, I found food being one of the main means through which understand a culture and its people.
I have to be honest: there aren’t many things in life that excite me the most than sitting around a dinner table, sharing good food and memorable stories with the very same people i love. This is how I create my memories, one bite at the time.
Currently, I travel back and forth between Italy and the United States, often managing to find myself indulging at restaurants and farmers’ markets in New York, Los Angeles or Paris.
I hope you will enjoy reading about my experiences, finding inspirations through that very same food, and those very same places, that to me are so motivating.
It has always been my belief that you can’t be a good chef unless you see and experience the world; You can’t be a good traveler unless you embrace and understand food; But, most importantly, you can’t live life fully unless you let pleasure take over it. Eat. See. Travel.
