  • Description

    I'm an Italian guy,on a long term travel through Asia by land, moving from hostel to private project to help and meet people, acquire new skills and learn from the culture of locals in each place.
    In my past:
    I lived 2 years in a eco project in Spain, doing all sorts of things, from cooking and food preserving, harvesting,gardening,cleaning,help with building, and manage the money.
    And I lived an year in a guest house of friends, taking care of the guest, cooking, cleaning, housekeeping,maintenance of the house,repairing and gardening.
    Lived in a permaculture farm, eco-culture educational center in the mountain of Greece for a year an a half doing many task, mainly cooking for guests,organizing shopping, food and kitchen and helping with maintenance and some natural building like natural plastering and wood working,cleaning, and some gardening.
    All run with the host or by myself for many months a year.
    And working in yoga retreat/meditation retreat, as vegetarian chef.
    Now i have been to numerous hostels to help with housekeeping, cleaning, events and various tasks.
    I been organizing kitchen,shopping and staff for restaurant in music festivals and cook there as well as summer job.
    And many years of kitchen/hotels/cafe/pastry shop, and so on as chef and pastry chef.
    Food wise:
    I have a specialization in pastry, where was my main job for many years, but I develop a lot of interest in cooking, and become a chef in restaurant/festivals/guesthouse/and retreats. vegetarian the most and specialized in Mediterranean food, but still love to do Asian food, or learn more about it, that's main reason of my travel.
    I have skill in bread making and pizza as well.
    And various knowledge about food processing,preserving,fermentation and so on.
    So I will be good for hostel/hotel/guest house, eco project, for give a help in there.

    About myself, I'm a chill person, i adapt fast to situation and to the ''out of comfort-zone'', i see myself an hardworking person when is needed, as well with love for details, and with experience of communal life.
    Who of course i have a lifetime love for food,(teach me something you eat here i show you some of my place) have a passion in plants to use as food or medicinal, and recognize it and use it, I do love travel with my backpack here and here without flying, and try to play guitar and didgeridoo, i'm into painting with oil, and learn new languages and cultures, I'm interested in gardening and growing veggie and so on, expand my skill and learn new stuff about food,permaculture,landscaping,animal care, natural medicine and everything that orbitate around it.
