Tradition of the territory – that’s the mantra of my kitchen job.
Puglia is the culinary territory where I took my first steps in the kitchen.
My first work experience began back in 1995, where I was working to meet university expenses. I worked hard, I watched with a lot of patience the veterans of the sector, to grasp and make every nuance of the job my own.
I have come a long way, where the daily commitment and love for traditional dishes offered me the opportunity to work in restaurants of great value in Puglia.
Simplicity is the mother ingredient of my dishes, always seasoned by the seasonality and availability of the product on the territory, to convey the authenticity of the flavors brought to the table.
My dishes are always revisited in an elegant and contemporary way.
I have the honour of being the chef at Villa degli Aranci, in the beautiful town of Polignano a Mare, where land and sea come together and make you live an unforgettable culinary experience.
The daily catch and fresh vegetables are the basic ingredients with which to prepare recipes that make you live a dream, a dream called Puglia.
