Where are you from?

I’m from Desenzano del Garda, a very nice city located on the southern shore of Lake Garda ... . Growing there gave me a lot of chances to know different cultures and languages, since it is a well-known touristic place. Tourists visit from all over the world, especially from northern Europe.

Where does your passion for cooking come from?

My love of cooking ... as any other love, it comes from the heart. There doesn’t have to be an explanation, it’s the same when you love someone: you can’t really tell why ... if you could, it wouldn’t be love!

What is your favorite thing to prepare at home?

Bread, just simple, tasty, nice bread.

What is your number one cooking tip?

The golden rule: cook everything as it is for a loved one.

Your favorite thing about New York City?

Manhattan makes me feel part of something bigger ... full of opportunities!
