Meet Your Chefs
Born and raised in Venice, Italy, Fede's relationship with food began as a young child “helping” his mother make gnocchi…or more correctly, playing with the floury dough on the kitchen table. At age 14, he enrolled in culinary school for 5 years.
During the summer breaks, he would work in various restaurants and hotels in Venice and the surrounding area. He also spent a season working in Tuscany. In 1999, he decided to leave Italy to experience the world and arrived in Grand Cayman to work as a line cook at Ragazzi Restaurant. After 2 years, he was promoted to Head Chef – a position held for 5 more years. In 2007, he moved on to help in opening sister restaurant LUCA at the Caribbean Club, where he worked as Head Chef for 9 years. Finally at the ripe age of 40, the opportunity to open his own restaurant arrived, and after teaming up with Barney, the bacaro adventure began. His food philosophy is simple – source the freshest, quality, local ingredients, and simply match them together – no messing around! He believes in letting the food speak for itself.
