I am an artist. Each meal is a canvas. I paint with water, fire and elemental ingredients.
Sometimes, the seemingly easy is the most difficult. A simple meal can take a great deal of planning and preparation. The greatest achievement is to create the most with the least.
I owe much to my father. He instilled in me a love for the basics – the foundations – of Italian cuisine such as pasta, figs and olives. My innovation is to combine the classics with new tastes and textures. It is evolution.
