Ciao, I am Fabio, welcome to the Venetian kitchen!

Born and raised in Venice, Italy, I inherited a deep passion for cooking from my mother, a true Venetian who was born and lived in Cannaregio, the northernmost of the six historic sestieri (districts) of Venice.

Growing up, I spent a lot of time in the kitchen with her, learning the secrets of Venetian cuisine that combine flavors and stories from the sea, land, and lagoon. After graduating, I began working in the food and tourism industry and have since gained experience working in various restaurants, both as a waiter and cook, hotels, and maritime agencies, both on board of ships and ashore. And if there is one thing that I learnt is that good food makes people happier and it's also about joy, passion, life, family, and friends.

Ten years ago, I moved to London for work, and while I have grown to love my new home, my heart remains with Venice and its incredible food. Venetian cuisine brings back memories of home, family, and friends, and sharing these traditions with others is something I truly cherish.

Besides the Venetian Kitchen I also run the baking blog the Italian baker, where I share baking recipes with an Italian twist and run Brixton Windmill baking classes throughout the year.
