Experienced private chef. Fine dining, Michelin star and luxury catering background chef. I attend private events, cooking lessons, birthday parties, private dinners and cooking skills demonstrations.

Methodology

Hi my name is Giovanni, I'm 30 years old and I am a freelance chef whom also works as a private one.
I started to work in Italy and than I came to London to make new working and life experiences.
I currently work with Levy one of the best catering firm not only in the UK but in many more countries.
I worked for five temporary luxury chef agencies and In five years in London I had the opportunity to work for Michelin star and fine dining restaurants, luxury 5 stars hotels and massive venues like Wembley, Stamford Bridge, Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Royal Ascot, the Emirates stadium and many more.
I Also have been head chef of a 2 year in a row best 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) and french mostly with influences from asian and south american culinary culture.
I can also teach you how to prepare many delicious desserts considering that I have experience in the pastry section too.
Don’t hesitate to contact me if:
-If you are a complete beginner when it comes to prepare homemade food;
-you want to add a professional twist to your cooking skills and learn new ones;
-you want to organise a private event/party;
- you want me to cook for you and your friends fine dining dishes comfortably at your place.

I live in central London so I can easily travel everywhere and I am also available to travel outside the city if required.

I am really looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Giovanni

Background

During my career I gained experience not only in fine dining and Michelin starred restaurants, but also in luxury 5 stars hotels and massive busy venues like Wembley stadium, Stamford bridge, The Emirates Stadium, Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Royal Ascot, The Kia Oval stadium and many more.

I also had the chance to jump in the private sector where I gained experience in not only organising private events, dinners, fine dining cooking demonstrations, birthdays and private parties but also many cooking lessons.
I am specialised in modern European, italian and french cuisine but my knowledge includes influences from the asian and south american one and I also have experience in the pastry section.

Don’t hesitate to contact me if:
-you are passionate about food and you fancy to have a private chef preparing and serving fine dining style dishes at your home for you and/or your friends.
-you want to organise a private event/party.
-you want to attend cooking lessons.

I am really looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Perfect! Giovanni is as nice as gifted in cooking! It was a real pleasure to learn more about recipes with him :)
I highly recommend him as a super prof :)

Giovanni's response

Sophie was a perfect host: very polite, patient and and welcoming.
I did my best to make sure the cooking lesson gift for her husband was enjoyable and the food delicious, she also decided to help with the food preparation and she got really involved during the cooking.

Thank you so much again Sophie

Perfect! Giovanni has joined me for 3 days in a cooking half-term camp for children aged 3-8 years , he was the cooking instructor for around 9 to 12 children, which he managed to get all the children attention and involved them all in the food preparation . I am so happy with the result and feedback that i have received from the parents and children, they were all impressed with the fine dinning meals that the children have cooked with him . I totally reccomend Giovanni, not only he cooks the most delicious food, he is a professional chef, organised, committed to his work, always punctual and looked for perfection everyday in presenting the best cooking classes for the children, It was a pleasure working with Giovanni !

Giovanni spent the morning cooking with my son and his friend, both teenage boys have Adhd and are hard to engage. Giovanni was patient, informative, they learnt so much, and were rewarded with a really delicious meal at lunch which they had all prepared together. My son is looking forward to his next lesson and I highly recommend Giovanni who makes the cooking really fun and engaging. TC.

It has been a pleasure to have Giovanni in our home. He has taught me many cooking techniques, concepts and as well where to source the best ingredients to use. I have enjoyed having lessons with Giovanni and cooking a number of special dishes together. He is always helpful (even after our lesson), professional and clearly explains everything. I would not hesitate to recommend Giovanni as a trustworthy, responsible and knowledgeable tutor!
