Originally from the sun-soaked Sicilian seaside, where food is our passion, I first arrived in London in 2013.

I arrived thinking to stay only for a few-day holidays, but the city stole my heart and I started looking for work opportunities in the London catering industry. Coming from a catering background – having worked as a chef in Sicily and Toscany before – I soon got a job with D & D group. I got to know Chanaka when we both worked in D&D’s Chophouse. His passion and professionalism always inspired me.

Couple of years fast forward our paths’ crossed again, when I started working in Buddha Bar London Knightsbridge in 2017. After a couple of years, with dedication and hard work I was offered the Head Chef position in Buddha Bar. For many years both of us had a dream and ambition to open our own business one day. We often had conversations about this.


"My main area of expertise is traditional Thai cousine, I have passion for pastries and of course growing up in Sicily my family instilled the love of Italian food in me. I also love experimenting with spices and textures".
