Enzo grew up in the beautiful town of Torricella Peligna where his love for food and cooking was established early on. As a child he spent time in the kitchen learning from his chef mother and was delighted to begin his own training at fourteen at the world renowned Insituto Tecnico Alberghiero Villa Santa Maria, graduating after six years with the highest awards for degrees in catering and teaching.

After working throughout Italy, Enzo moved to London in 1997 and quickly established his reputation as both a head chef and executive chef whilst working in TV and radio and leading presentations at food exhibitions. After becoming vegan in 2000, Enzo began sharing his knowledge about plant based cuisine in various roles and services within the food industry, consulting, developing new products for chains and brands and advising on new food trends.
