Chef Victor's passion for tasty food developed at a young age, when he grew up in an Italian home where the family gathered around the kitchen table celebrating family and sharing countless dishes prepared by the many visiting friends and relatives.
From age eight, Vic knew he wanted to prepare food for a living and recreate and master the flavoursome dishes he grew up with.
He devoted his passion to Italian and Mediterranean cooking, blending together a history of passion and flavors.
Vic’s chef training begun at NMIT in Northcote where he graduated in 2004 and completed a butchery course on the side - proving to be very handy as he makes his own sausages and salamis.
Today Vic admits he is still honing his culinary skills and continues to gather inspiration from his family, combined with a wealth of knowledge gained from his experience working with well known establishments both overseas and in Australia.
Apart from cooking and dining out, Vic enjoys motorbike riding and visiting local farms and wineries, selecting only the freshest produce for his meals and kitchen.
