A Short Biography

Early Experience

I was born in Connecticut to a large Italian family. At four years old, I began cooking with my beloved grandmother Santa Francoletti. My first culinary experience was limited to stirring the pot or washing vegetables. These were moments when the seed for my culinary passion was planted.

By the time I was ten years old, I was preparing food in my father Luigi’s restaurant. I ran a few business ventures of my own—a lemonade stand—as well.

Background in Culinary

When I got older, I worked at restaurants in the East and West Coast of the USA. I was a cook and mess steward in the Army for a time as well.

I owned a total of three restaurants of which two were successful. In 1982, I opened a profitable large volume wholesale bakery that distributed throughout America and Japan.

To date, I coach start-up food firms in expanding their business. I also help established companies solve problems and stay profitable.
