Gio’s love of food began at an early age, as he helped his grandmother in the kitchen of her restaurant. She taught him all the secrets of genuine and authentic Italian cooking, passed down from generation to generation. Most pertinently, he learned the importance of sourcing the freshest ingredients and its centrality to Italian cuisine. Since moving to London, he worked as a chef in several well-respected Italian establishments.

He is not only an expert in Italian food, but he also has a diploma at Le Cordon Bleu cooking school in London, where he have been studying french cuisine. Recently he took a course in Italy with the famous Gualtiero Marchesi, for him the “father of modern cuisine, and today he is a proud member of the slow food organization in Uk, he is also one of the few chefs that are member of the slow food Chef Alliances. Gio is studying to become a master of wine after achieving a diploma as a Sommelier from the Italian Sommelier Association.
