As a native of North Eastern Ohio, I grew up in a traditional Sicilian household.
My passion for food is the direct result of being involved with the preparation of family meals.
In our family, meal time was an integral part of life. So much attention to detail was given in
perfecting recipes and utilizing each others’ abilities to create meals with farm fresh ingredients while implementing the change of seasons and products available.
These family traditions have inspired me to usher the same approach to my own restaurants, while bringing simplicity to new levels.
Although I have no formal “Institutional” training, I am very fortunate to have worked with many world renowned chefs and restaurants in my Culinary Career,
including: Chef Jean Pierre Brieher, The Left Bank Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, G. G. Romano, Papparazzi’s Manhattan, New York, and La Tavernetta Tamarac, Florida.
I have also filmed a trailer for a television show that I hope to launch in the future, to be called “Around the Table with Vince”.
The vision is to share the simple concepts of food preparation, the use of common household items, integrating uncomplicated recipes, and the proven results
anyone can achieve by “Keeping it Simple!”
