Born and raised in the culinary capital of Milan, Italy, it was destiny that Luca inherited his passion for food and culinary exploration in his homeland. Luca’s interest and passion for food commenced with his Mom and Nonna when he was just eight years old, taking his first few steps with them in the direction of becoming a chef. One of today’s most successful chefs and food consultants in the world, this is Luca’s journey from Milan, Italy to Australia and beyond, and how his food journey has made him one of the most sought after chefs. From what he learned as the basics from his mother and grandmother, to life in a different time growing up in Milan and holidays at Lake Como, to moving to London to establish himself to be one of the most credible chefs on Italian cuisine.
Luca Ciano’s established career includes the famous 2 Michelin-starred restaurant “Il Luogo di Aimo e Nadia” in Milan, as well as international roles at London’s Millennium Gloucester Hotel and Relais & Chateaux in Bermuda. He has been given many awards around the world, including Les Toques Blances D’Honneur and an honorary professional career award in Italy. Luca currently consults for restaurants, hotels, magazines, and Italian brands around the world, providing guidance and assistance in their daily operations, as well as part of his ambassador roles.
