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 making the family evening meal by the age of eleven. When it was time to choose his career path at fourteen, he was delighted to begin his training at the prestigious, world renowned Insituto Tecnico Alberghiero Villa Santa Maria. There he spent six years and graduated with the highest awards for degrees in catering and teaching.

After working his way around 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 allowed him to utilise his teaching skills. After becoming vegan in 2000, he began sharing his knowledge about plant based cuisine in various roles and services within the food industry, consulting, developing new products for well known health brands and advising companies on new food trends.
