Growing up In Northern Italy meant being surrounded with notoriously good food and wine from a young age. Christian’s future as a chef was well and truly carved before he knew it!

Days would be spent cooking with the family, utilising the abundance of amazing produce, handled with the most traditional methods.

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

After many years cooking his way around Europe, Christian moved to Sydney, displaying his traditional Italian cuisine as head chef at the likes of the ‘Martini restaurant and bar’ and ‘Apertivo’ 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!
