I started my career more than ten years ago in Italy and eight years ago I decided to move to London to gain new career and life experiences and working in one of the best professional hospitality scene in the world.
I currently work not only in the private hospitality sector but also as freelance chef with many established hospitality companies and with Levy UK, one of the best hospitality firms in Great Britain and worldwide.
Previously I worked for Michelin star and fine dining restaurants and chalets and with four luxury chef recruitment agencies, working in a la carte restaurants and for 5 stars hotels and massive venues like Berkeley hotel, the Shangri-La hotel @ The Shard, the Trafalgar hotel , the Hilton hotel, the Sheraton Park Lane hotel, Coda restaurant @ Royal Albert Hall, Ascot racecourse ON4 restaurant (Royal week), Tunnel club restaurant, HClub suites and a la carte restaurants @ Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Wembley stadium, Stamford Bridge, Emirates stadium, and many more (a la carte restaurants and banqueting services).
I have also been head chef of a two years in a row best gastro wine bar in Clapham.
Thanks to my travels around Italy and Europe my experience focus on modern European cuisine, Italian, Mediterranean and North European mostly with influences from modern fusion culinary culture.
