About Me

My friends call me Ele, but actually Eleonora.

An important name given to me by my parents, probably influenced by the Gonzaga court.
My life is an intersection of the life of a busy mother and passionate caterer.

My Experience

  • Everything comes by chance: a request for consultation from a British catering company led to the desire to continue on this path.

  • This was followed by two specialty restaurants, with a few tables and fine but down home cuisine.

  • A trip to Bhutan, whereHappiness is the goal led me to the discovery of Eastern flavors. My approach is to focus on presenting dishes where one can easily see the bounty of the earth, and not the current food trend.

  • For some years now, I have been in training to appreciate the sensory analysis of the food, with intense focus on particular aromas and characteristics of ingredients. This training continues to this day.

Areas of expertise

My passion for cooking, which led to owning two restaurants, and my curiosity for the cuisines of other countries, have inspired me to develop new approaches to Asian cuisine, and new recipes using western techniques.
