„Born and raised in Naples, the cradle of gastronomy for centuries, I have been exposed to a avariety of authentic and wholesome, delicious local products. Gastronomy as an art is a way to express ourselves and let everybody else enjoy it. For me, every dish is a creation that evolves during work in progress until it reaches perfection, the alchemy between taste and presentation.“
I have beautiful memories from my childhood. I remember our animated lunches on Sunday and the smell of my grandmother freshly baked bread and delicious dishes prepared by my mother. My father farmed the land in his spare time and yet I often helped him, those were my first contact with the nature and the gifts of the earth. The gastronomy as art is a way to express ourselves. I had a dream to become a Chef. I worked with dedication and I achieved my goal so far .
I started my culinary journey in Germany and France ; soon after I went back to Italy, met some extraordinary Chefs that sharpened my culinary skills , broaden my horizons and gained extensive knowledge of authentic Mediterranean cooking. The journey was not easy, but it did teach me that there is no short cut to success and that hard work pays off.
Good food is genuine and made of high-quality ingredients. My favorites are the best, ecological and local products that stand for quality and taste, authenticity and environmental sustainability. Freshness, taste and textures are core factors for the success of a dish.
For me, every dish is a creation that evolves until it reaches perfection. It is alchemy between taste and presentation. I try to strike a balance between traditional and contemporary style. I believe that the richness of flavor that we gain from traditional cooking cannot be compromised, and so I try to translate the authenticity in modern creations.
