“My passion for pastry began in the early teens with cake design. I then decided to embark an educational journey, to transform this passion into my job, attending one of the best pastry schools in the world: ALMA.

In ALMA I learned the foundations of pastry, the love and art of this job. It gave me a great career opportunity, first with an internship in a starred restaurant in Milan, Alice (now ViVa) by Viviana Varese, then giving me the strength and skills to go abroad and continue my career as a pastry chef . After ALMA I decided to move abroad first to London and then to Sydney for 4 years.
During this journey I had the opportunity to work in fine-dining restaurants and also in pastry shops.

And it is precisely in the “land of kangaroos” that I approached and became passionate about VEGAN PASTRY.

I had the opportunity to work in a bakery that created some plant-based desserts where they also gave me the opportunity to experiment with new recipes.

Since that moment I have never stopped studying, experimenting and researching products that could replace eggs, gelatine, butter, cream, etc.

I discovered a whole world, but at first I was skeptical and I didn’t know where to start, I never thought I’d be able to create the vegan desserts that I make now.
I define my style as modern, elegant and clean, I like to make complicated desserts with long preparations, but often I also share simple recipes within everyone’s reach.

My ultimate goal is to transform every traditional pastry into vegan, keeping the modern style I love, starting from scratch, creating my recipes and studying new ingredients and techniques.

My thought is that there are no limits, with a lot of study and technique it is possible to make any dessert without animal derivatives, and these have nothing to envy to traditional pastry, if anything, the opposite as by baking vegan we will only create a better world without hurt anyone.
There is no need to give up taste and aesthetics and I will prove it to you through my recipes , which you can find in my BLOG and EBOOKS.

 

In 2021 I also decided to found a Vegan Online Academy “L’Opéra del Dolce” to be able to pass on all my knowledge and techniques regarding modern vegan pastry. In the Academy you will find ONLINE COURSES consisting of a practical and a theoretical part, find out more by clicking HERE.

 

Thank you for visiting my website and I hope I have passed on and taught you something new.”
