“WOW! What an unbelievable experience to have a private chef of your calibre cook for us in our villa. One of the highlights of our holiday. The mix of Asian flavours complemented the setting so well. I would recommend this experience to anyone.”
“I am an artist. I think in tastes, textures, colours, contours. Cooking is my artistic expression, and the plate is my canvass. With an eternal curiosity for all things edible, I am passionate about celebrating and fusing local flavors and cooking methods with a unique, modern approach.
I believe that a dish should not be over-complicated; by choosing the highest quality ingredients the natural flavours and textures burst through. Where possible I forage, catch, and when at home, grow my own ingredients.
Having discovered the stove at an early age in the kitchens of my Italian neighbours, I saw how food brings people together. The food I serve comes from my heart.”
