Learn more about Francesco

Francesco

Ciao! My name is Francesco and I am originally from Modena, the city where the world-famous "Aceto balsamico" (balsamic vinegar) comes from and the region where the well known-made pasta-making tradition originates (tortellini, ravioli, and tagliatelle to name just a few.) I have always been very passionate about cooking and now that I live in New York I'd like to share my experience and knowledge with you. I worked as a sous-chef for several Italian restaurants for 2 years, both in Italy and The Netherlands, cooking full​l course meals for up to 200 guests. https://www.instagram.com/vittcookingclass/
