Summary of where the Chef’s cuisine is inspired from and how he/she goes about expressing it

I was born to a family of great home cooks, in a household that loved to entertain. My mom, my first culinary instructor, taught me to make hand made pasta when I was fourteen, and I’ve always loved cooking shows and experimenting in the kitchen. I quickly fell in love with the thrill of cooking a dinner for 10-15 people in my home. My food philosophy is simple: the best ingredients, handled with respect and properly cooked. The rest comes down to working with my clients’ personal preferences and dietary requirements to create meals perfectly suited for their nourishment and pleasure. My cooking style covers a wide range of flavors, but my strength is the typical and original Italian food served with simplicity. Now that I am in London, I hope to bring my passion for food to your next event.

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

I have started my experience in the kitchen since I was 10 years old, watching my mother cooking amazing dishes for our family. Throughout the years I've developed my passion and started working in various restaurants as helper, assistant to the chef, and finally I have decided to become personal chef.

    We had a wonderful experience at home with our friends with our first chef at home experience! Federico was not only extremely professional, but friendly and accommodated all our dietary restrictions. He worked in advance to make a menu that suited our needs and made for an absolutely wonderful evening with fabulous food and was such a treat to have him in our home! Would highly recommend him for your next at home event!

    I am amazed by chef Federico's Tiramisu! I have tried hundreds of Tiramisus in my life, but this is something crazy!!! Best Tiramisu in town, without any doubts. I really wish to get chef Federico for my next event.
