I am an Italian chef specialized from 8 years in pastry.
I have been travelling during the last five years to learn to how menage and organize properly a pastry department in his multiple application areas as like five star hotels and fine dining restaurants or aswell banquets and pastry shops.
I learned also how to deliver the highest level of service to fully reach the customer satisfaction.
At work I am always focused and I pretend always the best from my Pastry brigade. I believe that a crucial point is played by the building of a reliable teamwork which is responsible to mantain the same high standards that I want to guarantee.
I like to change the menu often according by the use of seasonal products.
What else motivate me is to discover new methods and techniques and fuse them with my most successfull recipes to create unique, elegant and stunning desserts.
