Celebrating a special occasion? Book the whole table
I'm a professional chef, originally from Sardinia, graduated at the prestigiuos Chef Academy in Terni. I love Italian traditional kitchen and also fusion cuisine where i get mixed up my roots with the rest of the world. I like to share with people my knowledge and passions, telling the depth of Italian cuisine and discovering the differences between other cultures. I love all the entire world of food, from taste to nutrition, from products to workers, that's why i've studied Food, Nutrition and Health at Wageningen University. So for ethical and tasteful choice I use only seasonal and local products, when possible from organic farms, fair-trade chain and Slow Food districts. I prefer a quick cooking method that preserves the tastes, the colors and the nutrients, which involves the use of many spices and herbs, international products and recipes reinterpreted with Italian style. My home is in typical Tuscan style and offers a cozy and familiar atmosphere where by modern culinary techniques we will exalt the traditional flavors!

Was erwartet Sie bei Matteo?
As a Christmas surprise for our 3 young adult children, we arranged for cooking dinner with Chef Mateo at his home in Florence. We had a wonderful and memorable experience with this accomplished Chef! Matteo was warm, knowledgeable, friendly, fun and spoke English well. We couldn’t have had a better Christmas dinner! Not only did we learn how to prepare several dishes but gained valuable insight to the Italian way of life and culture that normal tours don’t offer. This was a highlight among many for our Italian Christmas vacation!
Matteo was the perfect host. We had so much fun walking around Firenze and not only eating delicious food but also learning all about the city at the same time. He was wonderful with our kids and by the end Matteo was family and we were all so very sad to have to leave his company. He brought us to several local places that had the very best espresso, salami, parmesan and gelato to name a few things. He even got me to try tripe and it was DELICIOUS!!! I beyond highly recommend a tour with Matteo! You won’t go wrong! (Except your pants might not fit by the end of the tour! ;) )
