Eliana’s culinary odyssey commenced amidst the renowned halls of a historic school in Stresa, Italy. Under the guidance of a seasoned and passionate mentor, she forged her culinary path, absorbing the rich traditions of Italian gastronomy.

Traversing Italy’s Michelin-starred establishments and expanding her horizons to London, San Francisco, and finally Melbourne, Eliana cultivated an elegant yet unorthodox style. She imbues simplicity with refinement, infusing local and organic ingredients into her creations while honoring the essence of Italian culinary heritage.
