Get to know me better
Experienced private and freelance chef
Hi my name is Giovanni and I am 32 years old.
I started my career in Italy and 8 years ago I came to London to gain new working and life experiences and immerse myself in one of the best professional hospitality scene in the world.
I currently work not only as private chef, but also as a freelance with Levy UK, one of the best catering firm in the world.
I also worked for Michelin star and fine dining restaurants and four temporary luxury chef agencies, working for luxury 5 stars hotels and massive venues like Wembley, Stamford Bridge, Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Royal Ascot, Emirates stadium, the Hilton hotel, Berkeley hotel, The Shangri-La hotel @ The Shard and many more.
I have also been head chef of a 2 year in a row best gastro wine bar in Clapham.
My experience focus on modern European food, Italian (as a native I can teach you the authentic traditional cuisine of my beautiful country), Mediterranean and North European mostly with influences from modern fusion food culture.
For me, cooking is...
My job and one of the many passions I have got.
I learned to cook at...
I started to work in the kitchen in a nice 5 stars chalet in Tortoreto called "Sayonara"
A role model in the kitchen is...
There is not only one, but Gualtiero Marchesi is one of the chef that inspired me the most.
A cooking secret...
is the passion for good food

Chef Giovanni's reviews
Every dish was absolutely delicious, with interesting and delicate flavour combinations, well paced with good portion size (and we are all foodies). The wine pairing was superb. It was the first time Giovanni cooked for us, so I held him back on some suggestions, but next time (and I really hope there will be many more next times) I will have complete trust in whatever he suggests. I could not recommend him more highly.

Chef Nunziata, you contributed to one of the best experiences of my life. You went out your way to make sure my girlfriend and I had the most authentic experience with Italian food and culture. You are extremely knowledgeable about each and every dish you prepare and went out your way to provide us with products that you received straight from Italy. Whenever I need a dish prepared for an event in the UK or wherever you are open to traveling to, I will always coordinate with you. Thank-you for everything! I met a knew friend, chef, and will always support and reference you for others!
