Team of Old Mill
I have many years of experience in this field, first as a very young DJ then afterwards as a Bartender, Sommelier and then Maître. I am also proud of the fact that as a young man, I was the assistant cook in Los Angeles at the Italian Trattoria “Gino’s” where perhaps it all started.
I have travelled far and wide both in the kitchen as well as in commercial experiences; from major Italian catering services for dinners and events, including some of the greatest organizers and wedding planners worldwide to the fashion world, doing cocktail parties and trendy events.
While I am a marketing and communications expert, my real passion is the Art of Cooking.
As the founding owner of Le Cirque Firenze, my experience is at your service with ideas, new menus, exotic Provençal and northern European essences, then decorative styles, wines … ask me and I will fulfil your dreams, as the concept of « impossible » doesn’t exist in my vocabulary. I consider myself a “crazy dreamer” and everything is do-able; come with me, we will have fun!
Catering is like the Circus, and like the Circus goes into a village, erects its big top, performs its show and then dismantles everything and goes away; Catering does the same as it arrives at the location, sets up its show, then dismantles everything and goes away.
Who does Catering is a little bit like a circus performer of food service.
