Angelo

I'm 36 years old from Sicily.After having worked in Sicily and Rome as a chef, I had a three-year experience in Japan where I worked as a pastry chef in 4 Italian restaurants including two starred restaurants, Bice Tokyo and Bulgari Tokyo and I worked in Tokyo for Ferrero about events of Ferrero Rocher. I also learned Japanese cuisine there. Now back in Sicily I give cooking lessons for foreigners and Italians with my wife Paola of Guatemala City and I work with her as a chef at home for dinners and catering events with Italian,Japanese and South American cuisine. We organize tour and experiences about wine and Sicilian food and visit the Sicilian farms about pistachios, almonds, oranges, lemons, grapes and other more.
