About The Food Wonder

Hi, and thank you for visiting my blog!

My name is Elia and I live in Sydney, Australia.

I am a Professional Chef with more than 12 years of experience in the field, i grew up in Milan, Italy and i’ ve always been very interested to food since very young age.

I love cooking, most importantly i love how food can connect different cultures and life moments all together.

For me food isn’t just about eating, it is about everything, also about all the stories behind it.

That’s why i started traveling 20 years ago with a particular focus on discovering food and cultures all around the world, and it opened up me so many stories and experiences that are truly unforgettable.

I have worked in restaurants in Milan, London, Nice, St. Moritz, Singapore, Melbourne and Sydney where i finally end up living for few years now.

Lately the discovery about food is been awesome, i’ve developed a very big interest in Asian and South American Cuisine as Australia has been in the last few years influenced with so many different cuisines and styles.

Of course i will never forget my Mediterranean roots and this is still the food that i slightly enjoy the most.

What you will find on this website

On this website, you will find everything that i have learned through the years as Chef and traveller, everything about food that i know and that i’m still discovering, some of the best recipes that i have used and i believe are top quality, and some of my very best recipes that i still keep in my secret notepad and usually not share with anyone.

That’s why i have created this Blog, to share my knowledge because after all i love cooking and sharing these things with everyone, usually over a glass of good red wine.
