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

I come from a fascinating region of Italy where charming ambiance and good food are inseparable. My grandmother had a restaurant so I grew up in the kitchen! All of this made me fall in love with food and cooking. I decided to make it my profession and so I enrolled in Cooking School.
