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

I learned how to cook by observing my parents who are great home cooks. Being Italian further enhanced my passion for cooking and only when I reached the final of MasterChef UK 2011, a gruelling and hard competition did I realised I wanted to further improve and make cooking my career.

    Chef Sara was a pleasure to work with and her food was delicious. All the guests had a fantastic time as a result. Sara was incredibly flexible and understanding when challenges arose, and did everything she could to design a menu that would work within the limitations of the venue. I would highly recommend Chef Sara!
