I'm home cook from Sicily, but live in Milan since 1999. I’m 100% Vaccinated.

My Speciality are the traditional Sicilian and Northern Italian Pasta, Sicilian Street foods and Cannoli.

I've been a home cook since I was a boy. I learned from my grandmother a lot secrets to make easy delicious food at home and I would like to share them!

Since 2018 I’m organizing "social dinning" in my home for locals and travelers and I’m hosting also another Live Airbnb experience "Pasta & Tiramisù with Sicilian Style" and a new Online experience “Make Cannoli with Sicilian Home Chef”

I’m in Instagram with delicious photo and stories

What a great experience in Milan. Gianfranco gave excellent instructions to his place and it was easy to locate his apartment. Gianfranco was warm and welcoming with wine and snacks to begin our session, great hands-on cooking and good conversation. The instructions for the meal were clear and Gianfranco answered all our questions during the presentation and cooking. He was well prepared for the event and everything went smoothly. My husband and I had a great time and would highly recommend this Air BnB experience.

A kitchen that was an actual kitchen! We were welcomed into a home and learnt so much. We not only got to enjoy our delicious creations on the day over a glass of wine, but we have photos and recipes to take home with us. Great value for money and friendly host.

Gianfranco was really friendly and informative. He also asked in advance if we have any our food preferencies or hypersensitivities so as to personalize the cooking class for us. We have learnt a lot about the Sicilian cuisine, while making these two typical Sicilian dishes. It was a real fun! And so delicious...🙂 I would definitely recommend this experience to everyone who visit Milan and want to try something unique. Next time when coming to Milan we will probably go to the pasta and tiramisu cooking class of Gianfranco🙂

This experience was wonderful. I like both Cannoli and Arancini and didn't think I had the opportunity to make these myself, but I could get them in Milan. Gian is a very kind and attentive person, who also told me a lot about Sicilia. It was interesting and special to know the differences between the regions. The recipes and videos sent later were also great. Thank you.

Gianfranco is a special person; he is friendly, welcoming and always has a smile on his face. His instructions were clear and precise and I was able to gain some valuable insights into the successful preparation of arancine and cannoli. The food, of course, was delicious. Gianfranco è un uomo speciale; è amichevole, accogliente e sorridente. Le sue istruzioni erano chiare e precise e potevo ottenere informazione preziosa riguardo alla preparazione di arancine e cannoli. Naturalmente il cibo era delizioso!
