I am a cooking chef who has worked for more than 20 years in restaurants in Italy, London, Brazil and other locations around the world. My cuisine is based on creativity and the use of local products and ancient peasant recipes, which I like to research in books and traditions of the area where I live. Mine is a cuisine that blends anthropology (which is my degree) and gastronomy. The Valsusino area where I live is rich in ancient culinary traditions.
