Growing up in Northern Italy meant being surrounded by notoriously good food and wine at a young age, which meant that Christian’s future as a Chef was well established before he even knew it! His early days were spent cooking with the family, utilising the abundance of amazing produce, and learning to handle them with the most traditional methods.

Christian’s career officially began as a Chef in Milan, working in a number of distinguished restaurants, before moving to the Milan Intercontinental. A good relationship with the Intercontinental helped him transfer to London to gain experience and consultation from the famed Giorgio Locatelli.

After many years of cooking his way around Europe, Christian moved to Sydney, where he displayed his traditional Italian cuisine as the Head Chef at places like Bambini Trust and The Corner House, with numerous high scores and write-ups from the Sydney Good Food Guide.

Christian has the trademark perpetual Italian passion for all things food and wine. When he’s not cooking, Christian can be found eating his way around Sydney or shopping at the local markets for the best seasonal produce he can lay his hands on!
