How did you start your journey?
Not so traditional italian and mediterranean cooking!
Where is your cuisine inspired from?
My mom was working and never loved cooking, so as I was around 8 I learnt how to cook something better than a grilled chicken breast. I learnt from friends, books, and chefs... A friend let me join him as a sous-chef in a small restaurant in Genoa for a while, giving me the basic rules about how to cook for others and not just for myself. After that experience, while I was continuing my career in music industry I started cooking as a private chef in my free time. Coming to Dubai I had to learn how to get the best out of the different ingredients available and I've been influenced by some talented chefs I met around.
