Alessio (@RecipeTaster) was born in a sunny little town in Sicily back in the day. His life was happily divided between his scientific studies and practicing the decorative arts until he moved to Florence for University studies. Here, for the first time ever, Alessio was left free and responsible to cook for himself. Long story short, he soon was catering to all his housemates. Once he obtained his Master Degree in Physics, he moved to Bonn, Germany, to follow up with a PhD. It wasn’t long until Alessio realised how a tight fit a life of pure research was for him. In the period that followed, he started the blog “Recipe Taster“ as a way to reach out into what was still a mysterious world to him. Little by little though, what seemed at the beginning as a complete shift in careers, became more like a natural evolution of himself. Alessio’s scientific studies have in fact empowered him with the knowledge and attitude that he finds essential for developing new successful recipes that work. He works as freelance recipe developer, private chef, teacher and photographer, embracing both his artistic and scientific side.
Alessio will hold a Kitchen Science Labs throughout FBC12 with experiments using different types of food and equipment and discuss the application of kitchen science and principles in our daily lives.
