I come from Sicily ,where is possible to taste very special dishes prepared according to recipes from ancient traditions handed down from generations to the present day. I'm able to recognize the best vegetables , because i've worked as salesman for a wholesale of fresh vegetables, further I produced these by myself . I learned to cook looking my relatives that had a restaurant and thanks to my predisposition to work hard, with these chefs that left me their marks . I ‘ve lead more than one brigade, in Italy and in Thailand .
I prefer to use organic and local ingredients ,mixing world dishes with the best recipes from my island.
I'm strongly interested to find a place where I can apply my knowledge of ancient grains in the bakery department and continue to create healthy raw and vegan recipes.
