Living in a ski resort in the Swiss Apls is a unique experience. Roaming around France, Swizerland and Italy searching for interesting small restaurants, markets, food, people and wine is a passion I never get tired of. Born in an Italian family who started their life in the US in the food and restaurant business is where my journey began.
My grandparents started Italian specialty markets and restaurants when they arrived in the US from Italy in 1896. I grew up in these businesses around many family menbers who were wonderful cooks but my grandmother and mother wrote the holy bible of Italian food in my family. I basically still cook according to their style but have expanded and developed my own style.
I've lived in Switzerland for the last 20 years and spend a great deal of time in Italy, France and Germany. I've taken classes in Italy and Switzerland and have been lucky enough to not only have experienced eating in many wonderful restaurants around the world, but have collected many recipes from chefs I have met.
As the Italians say "One never grows old at the table"
