PRIVATE CHEF SCOTLAND
an Italian - Scottish food affair
I have been cooking all my life.
Born and raised in Milan, my life as a chef has brought me to the very best kitchens of Italy, London, Cyprus and Scotland.
And, although I will always be a proud Italian, it is Scotland that I now call home.
My Scottish wife first revealed the wonders of this country to me but, after relocating to Perthshire from the Mediterranean four years ago, I've fallen for its people, its landscapes and the stories they tell. But most of all, I've fallen for its food.
Seafood straight from the ocean, wild game, meat, cheeses and an abundance of locally grown fruit and vegetables.
Unsurprisingly, Italian dishes are popular here but I have realised, perhaps inevitably, that it is rarely represented in an authentic way.
And so, Italba was conceived.
It is my desire to create beautifully simple Italian dishes using the finest of Scotland’s fresh ingredients, and to share this passion with you; to provide an unforgettable culinary experience in the comfort of your own home.
