Hi my name is Giovanni, I'm 29 years old and I am a freelance chef.
I started to work in Italy and than I came to London to make new working and life experiences.
I currently work with five temporary chef agencies and In more than four years in London I had the opportunity to work for Michelin star and fine dining restaurants, 5 stars hotels, Premier League stadiums and big scale contract catering events.
I Also have been head chef of a busy wine bar in Clapham so I have a good knowledge of european cheese and charcuterie and terrines.
I'm a native italian so I can teach the 100% authentic cusine of my beautiful country and I can also teach french and british one with international twists because I had to follow/make a lot of different kind of menus in all the venues I have been working.
If you are a beginner or you want to add a professional twist to your cooking skills don't hesitate to contact me.
I live in central London so I can easily travel everywhere and I don’t mind ti travel outside London if we wind an agreement on the travel expenses.
I have been teaching in the kitchen where I worked so I teached to commis and demi chefs how to improve their cooking skills and knowledge while working in busy restaurants where high standard of food and hygiene are a must.
Teaching them was
wonderful and satisfying and than see those young chefs grow up to demi and than chef the partie was even more.
I also do private cooking lessons, private groups catering events and home cooking lessons and I can proudly say that the needs all my clients has been always satisfied.
My rates could go a little bit up if I have to travel very far (like outside London) or if the train tickets to arrive at the student's home are quite expensive.

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 !
