Who we are
Hello and welcome!
We are Marcello and Francesca and this is our online artisan lab.
We are happy that you are interested in our project and we would like to tell you a little about us.
We have worked for years in catering industry in Italy and abroad, then we opened a pastry lab and shop in Milan. Now we are here to meet you, let you taste something and - we hope - entertain you!
Marcello Rapisardi - Born in 1983, I have been cooking for over 20 years now. I worked in the kitchens of great Michelin-starred chefs in Italy and abroad, then I became passionate about pastry.
In 2015 I opened my artisan pastry workshop in Milan and in 2018 I was named "Best emerging pastry chef" by Gambero Rosso guide.
For 10 years I have also been working as a teacher holding courses for enthusiasts (from Eataly in Milan and Turin) and for professionals (Food Genius Academy).
They say about me: in no time, I can cook a complete menu from scratch!!
Francesca Gorza -
Born in 1982, a degree in Environmental Human Sciences and a master's degree in oenology and Marketing led me to have a background built between companies and restaurants.
I love to organize anything and learn as much as possible every day.
They say about me: I have a lot of patience and I remember everything (almost!)
