It has always been my dream to bring people together for unique dining experiences. At my exclusive Culinary Studio, I invite guests to dine with me at my Chef’s Counter. It is this experience that I hope you will treasure as much as I do.
Throughout our meal, I encourage interaction from my guests as I prepare their meals in front of them. Why do I do this? I do it because I am passionate about sharing my love of the art of cooking with others. And, by the end of the evening, my guests have become my personal friends. Whether you choose to dine at my state-of-the-art cooking school or at the intimate and cozy IL MITO restaurant, your home away from home, you will be truly amazed.
At my Chef’s Counter/Culinary Studio, I offer a variety of classes. Whether the class is Regional Tour of the World, Food Flight & Beer or Wine Tasting, one-on-one hands-on sessions, corporate team-building events, private dinners or my competition-based Feker’s Food Fights, I promise you will leave with a smile on your face and a head bursting with information about the marriage of cooking, food and flavor … not to mention a very full and satisfied stomach!
My personal cooking style is to combine the chemistry of classical French cuisine with the ingredients of traditional Italian cuisine, resulting in delicious flavorful food. Before opening IL MITO here in Milwaukee, I owned and served as the Executive Chef at the critically acclaimed Los Angeles eateries also known as IL MITO. Before having the pleasure of opening my own restaurant, I attended the California Culinary Academy, after convincing my father that I was already a Chef, not a dentist! As part of my training I traveled around the world learning from the best chefs in each port! I was also very fortunate to spend time working at Harry’s Bar and Grill in San Francisco, and Los Angeles restaurants Chianti Cucina, Locanda Veneta and Sostanza.
It is my hope that through this blog I can share my passion and my love for food and cooking with you. Please write me and let me know what you’d like to hear from me and how I can help inspire you in the kitchen. I will share many recipes and cooking ideas with you here on a regular basis.
