How did the Chef learn how to cook and what is his story?

My cooking story is a bit different from others chefs. I didn't go to cooking school. My background was totally different. I already had some skills, I always helped out my mum and grandma when we had to cook for Christmas or Easter days. Since I was a kid, I remember helping my grandma making homemade gnocchi with my fingers. It was great. I was so proud to spend time with her and if I close my eyes, I can even remember the smell of the flour and the amazing atmosphere of those happy days of celebrations. But one day I decided to leave my country and here I am. During my travels around the word I had a chance to join the hospitality industry. I discovered I really enjoyed cooking, it gave me a chance to study languages and pay the bills as well. So day by day working side by side with my colleagues I was keen and my skills got better. Traveling gave me a chance to stay in touch with different cultures and diverse background, learning and comparing new ways of cooking. I am very happy of what I am now, taking a chance to thank all the people I met, because without them, I couldn't have followed my path and they have made me wiser, more professional, self confident and more aware of myself than ever before.

    Fabio did a top job over a long day. He was easy to have around and the whole experience was very enjoyable. His two top dishes were his first and last: first a salmon and fish soup/broth - we have finished it all off today - very good and very popular, and last his chocolate pudding with fruit. Lovely and wet inside. would definitely do it again

    Fabio was fantastic, arrived early, prepared a delicious 3 course meal catering to our taste buds and was extremely tidy with the clean up. He was very helpful in putting together a menu that would suit divergent tastes and the quality was top notch. Would highly recommend, makes for a good evening in!

    We had a wonderful couple of days and Chef Fabio was really good. All our guests loved the food. The day went very smoothly and all the food got very high reviews from all attending. They were very neat and cleaned up after themselves. Anything that was requested was catered for with wonderful attitude from him and his sous-chef.

    Fabio is an exceptional chef - he cooked Christmas Day lunch for my family and it was the best food I have ever had. He was fun and friendly and so polite which made the whole experience even better. Everything was ready on time and tasted superb. Thank you Fabio - we will be calling upon you again very soon!

    Fabio was absolutely superb from the moment we first made contact. He responds within minutes . We wanted a cooking class for the kids and wanted them to learn how to make ravioli. Messages whizzed back and forth with Fabio suggesting some great Italian classics to choose from and also adding gnocchi to the menu too. It worked a dream with 2 kids in one team producing the ravioli and two in the other doing the gnocchi. Logistically., this could have been difficult to get rifght but Fabio managed everything smoothly and easily with a good sense of humour.. The kids had great fun and now know how to make ravioli and gnocchi . Fabio arrived exactly on time with all the ingredients ready. Nothing was misssing. He got changed into his chefs outfit so he very much looked the part too. At the end of the evening, every last knife and spoon was cleared away and washed up with the minimum of fuss.. In short, it was a real pleasure having Fabio in the house with us that evening - we wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

    Given that Fabio had very little time to prepare for this occasion I was so impressed with his professionalism and the cordial demeanor he discplayed throughout the entire process experience. He catered to a lot of very specific culinary needs and to an exceptional standard. All of our guests were very pleased with the food and the dining experience. I would definitely recommend him again.

    Wow! Fabio was utterly amazing and took the stress out of our dinner party! Arrived on time, very professional and the food was superb! A full Thanksgiving feast which was delicious, finishing with a pecan pie!!!! He left the kitchen (and oven!!!) sparklingly clean! Couldn't recommend him more!!!
