Introduction: I am a professional chef with fifteen years of experience in the culinary world. I was born raised in Italy where I studied at the school of hospitality in Torino/Turin. After five years of culinary school, I moved to Parma, Italy to study at the International School of Cuisine-ALMA, a culinary school directed by the great Gualtiero Marchesi. After graduation, I held various culinary and catering positions across northern Italy including time spent in Lago di Como/Lake Como. In 2013, I joined a prestigious catering company in Turin where I had the privilege to cook for and manage both intimate and large, high-end events for up to 1,000 guests. We frequently were able to work with well-known international business leaders while maintaining privacy and discretion. In 2015, I moved to America and joined a restaurant company with successful locations in Boston, Newport, and Providence, RI. For me, cooking is a mix of the best ingredients, love, and a hint of science. If you successfully combine these three together you will have the perfect meal!

My daughter hired Marco as a personal chef to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. He arrived on time and was very professional, personal, and friendly. We were served 4 course dinner which included capri salad, classic lasagna, filet mignon, and tiramisu. These were selected by my daughter from a long list of dishes he had suggested. He used high quality ingredients. He even taught me some culinary techniques. The food was amazing. Each course was better than the last. We will highly recommend Marco for any private occasion.

I thoroughly enjoyed my cooking class with Chef Marco. He was so professional and a terrific teacher. I have told some friends about him and they want to participate in my next two classes. I would highly recommend him. He is extremely knowledgeable and taught me some fantastic tips. I will be signing up for more classes with him for certain. And it was so much fun! He is wonderful!

We dream of the day when we can travel to Italy again. In the meantime my fiancée decided to bring Italy into our home and gifted a 4 course Italian inspired cooking lesson with Chef Marco. (And she interviewed quite a few chefs before selecting). Marco was timely in his response to her initial outreach and partnered perfectly with my fiancée to create a fish/seafood forward menu. Communication and customer service were excellent throughout the entire planning process and up to the finale! Chef does all of the shopping, was punctual and arrived to our house ready to go! We provided pans, mixing bowls, plates and a BIG appetite. Chef Marco provided everything else. Chef was there for guidance on technique and some experience where we lacked, but let me be clear about something here, we cooked and plated the food. Every dish and sauce were prearranged with Chef and we fell into the creation of our dishes with gusto. We started with the dishes that take the longest to cook (up first was chocolate creme brûlée) and while that was in the oven we went dish by dish though the rest of our menu. We have made our version of risotto many times, but now we can say we made love to the risotto and will only make it the way Chef Marco taught us. When cooking with Marco, there seems to be a symbiotic relationship with the food, nature, the world. Everything was just right, smelled out of this world, tasted even better. All the dishes were picture perfect and paired perfectly with our selected wines. Chef even surprised us with a lovely bottle of wine to pair with our meal! We love and have had our share of Cooking classes and demonstrations, although this was our first private experience. The intimacy and joy of learning in our private space takes the experience to a next level. A truly fantastic and entertaining time. We highly recommend Chef Marco Morini for teaching, catering or as a personal chef. He is that good. We look forward to his services and he will help us kick off a wine and food group with close friends. If you love cooking, love food, and want to learn from a great Chef who is personable, knowledgeable and professional that will improve your skills, Marco is the man! He is a true professional. Calm, patient and engaging yet unpretentious. He is a great teacher who instills confidence. We give the highest recommendations possible and wish him continued success! Salute & Buon appetito!

Chef Marco made our Valentine’s Day very special! He made a beautiful 4-course meal. The food was delicious and I’d highly recommend him to any couple that wants to have a fun in-home cooking experience or a group that wants a seasoned pro in the kitchen. Chef Marco is very personable and kind. I can’t wait to work with him on my next event!

Details: Date night • 2 guests • Dinner • Standard (basic ingredients) • Italian • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.

My daughter and son hired Chef Marco to give my husband and me a 4 course Italian cooking lesson as a retirement gift. The experience was a 12 out of 10, it was a great pleasure on every level. I cannot recommend him highly enough and can’t wait until we can do it again!
