His style of cooking is classic, formed during his attendance at the Culinary Institute in Turin and the prestigious Bocuse Academy in Lyon, but also based on an appreciation for local products. Always fascinated by the different tastes and aromas he encountered while working throughout Europe and the United States, his purpose is to make the others appreciate the pleasure and satisfaction of good eating. In his words, “food is health, health is happiness and happiness is wellbeing.”
