Get to know me better

I am a chef who loves cooking, the history of the cuisine of peoples and traditions, with great attention to the first product

Owner and chef of Shardana Catering, Stefano always watched and helped his mother and grandmother cook for their Saturday lunch during his childhood. It was a special day for the family, and their way to get together.

Whenever he saw them making some fresh pasta, the boiling water, the golden roast lamb cooking in the oven, and the scent that was in the air, he was in love with those sensations. So much so that he has made it his profession.

When he was 18, he started working for the first time in a restaurant kitchen in his beloved home region, Sardinia (Italy). Year after year, he managed to work in good restaurants where he met chefs who mentored and inspired him. He learnt how to recognise and use the best products and refine my techniques.

His leap in quality came when he decided to invest his savings and join the best Italian School, Alma, directed by the greatest Italian chef Gualtiero Marchesi. It left him overwhelmed by passion, and he started to work in Michelin starred restaurants.

“When I am in the kitchen, I like to create quality food through the enhancement of the natural flavours of each ingredient. For this reason, at Shardana, I always try to use products from local small farmers and artisans.

This way, I’m sure of their high quality, and I am able to share their passion and love of the products.”

Chef Stefano's reviews

4.7/ 5

Chef Stefano Shardana cooked a 60th birthday family celebration meal for my husband. He was responsive, helpful and cheerful at every stage of the process. His menu was interesting and varied and the standard of cooking surpassed our expectations. The appetisers and three course meal were delicious and we were exceptionally well looked after. I would highly recommend. Alison B
