Italian Cuisine

Gianluca Pardini began his career in Tuscany where from a young age he worked as a "piccino" in the kitchens: at the age of 20 he worked at the Excelsior in Florence and then flew first to France and then to Japan where he lived and trained for 4 years.
In 1986, when he returned to Italy, together with Paola, his lifelong partner, he successfully ran the restaurant Il Mecenate.
During the restaurant period he began his experience as a teacher, specializing in training Japanese chefs.
