I'm from Sicily, but live in Milan since 1999. My passion is cooking traditional Sicilian and Northern Italian food, Passion that's been handed down for generations in my family. I've been a creative home chef since I was a boy.

Since 2018 I’ve welcomed more than 1.000 people to my "secret kitchen" and many, many hundreds of good reviews for my two Live Cooking Experiences. Guests have called it “An absolutely wonderful experience in Milan! ”, “truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience”, and “something unique”. Now I’m bringing my family tips to your kitchen with this Online Experience.

I’m in Instagram with delicious photo and stories

So fun! Gianfranco is such a great teacher, we were so excited to eat our very own homemade cannoli & learnt so much in such a short space of time. It was so lovely to meet Gianfranco and get to hear a little bit about Sicily and Milan. We are counting the days till we can get over there!

Gian was really well organized with both great tech set up for audio and visual and ingredients ready to go, making him available to watch what we were doing and let us know how we were doing. The cannolis came out great. Gian was prepared to help us make the cannolis with or without certain pieces of equipment and had lots of adaptations ready to go.
