About Chef Tommaso

Tommaso is from a small town in Tuscany, in between Siena and Florence. So, he literally grew up in the center of Tuscany aka the center of Italy! The rich history of the region inspired him to go into the food/hospitality business. He worked for the famous Italian/Tuscan butcher Dario Cecchini of Netflix’s Chef Table (Tommaso can even be seen in the episode!) for years where he learned the craft. Eventually he traveled to America, and specifically LA, where he met his wife, and the rest is history. You will definitely be able to spot his Italian accent and what makes him most unique is his ability to connect to the home chef – since he cooks for his wife all the time! When Tommaso is not teaching virtual cooking classes you can find him at Eataly's rooftop restaurant Terra.
