Meet Chef Francesco

Francesco is a seasoned professional, who’s buoyant personality is reflected in his cooking and teaching style. Roman-born, and much travelled, his forte is the cuisine of Tuscany, Umbria and of course Roman cuisine, where he began his career in the legendary historic Roman trattoria districts of Testaccio and Trastevere.

Now after several years in different parts of Italy he has made his home in this area, where he lives by his statement:

“If the produce is not good, you will never get a good result. The preparation must be creative and presented in the best, most essential way. A great way to create delicious dishes is to limit the number of steps, and cook quickly. The product must be processed as little as possible.”
