At the tender age of 17, Adam realised he had an uncompromised fascination and passion for food. He invested 6 years of training with Majeros restaurant, but always knew he was destined for bigger and more inspiring dreams. By his mid twenties, Adam had become the owner of his own restaurant! Now, with over 20 years of experience, his devoted love affair with food has become a personal and professional success!
People who know Adam describe him as an ‘old soul’. His inspiration comes from the much loved traditional home style cooking which was a major part of his upbringing. “I spent my free time in my family’s cheese making business, and countless hours falling in love with the flavours and smells from my nonna’s kitchen. Kangaroo Island is one of the greatest destinations in Australia and I am thrilled to offer locals, tourists and visitors to the Island an amazing Italian experience”.
Extending his passion for food, Adam is also a regular chef on Ready Steady Cook, Everyday Gourmet, Good Chef Bad Chef, Open Homes Australia and is the ambassador for pasta maker San Remo.
