Besides being a "Tuscan Cook" i'm also a butcher. I've learned it from my father Adriano as it was his a previous job before starting to be a Wine and Olive oil producer
I was also very lucky for another reason, my other grandma came from Modena, in Emilia Romagna, and she taught me the secrets of fresh home made pasta, and at this point the circle was closed.. Tuscany-Emilia-creativity-tradition and passion!
In 2003 I began traveling with my cities tourism board, organising gala dinners and spreading the word on what traditional tuscan cuisine is all about, I then write about these experiences on this blog. The food I cook is all about freshness, (nothing frozen, canned or comes in boxes) and I only cook whatever is in season, I actually use my dad’s olive oil and wine in my restaurant. We believe in this!
