Alessandro began his KX adventure in the summer of 2008 dedicating all his passion, knowledge and expertise to delivering outstanding food and superior quality service. Working with first rate and organic ingredients he specialises in creating healthy and nutritious dishes without compromising on great taste.
Born in Rome, he started his culinary career whilst very young in his uncle’s restaurant, before attending the Professional Cookery School in Rome. Whilst at school he began working at a restaurant in the exclusive Parioli’s area where he consolidated his knowledge of Italian culinary traditions and also began developing his expertise in Japanese cuisine.
His desire for further knowledge drove him through various kitchens on Rome’s vibrant party scene, until 2004 when he moved to London and began work at the Neal Street Restaurant with Antonio Carluccio. The following year he moved to Cecconi’s in Mayfair where he became Sous Chef in only three years.
His passion and dedication alerted the attention of Soho House Group Executive Chef, Andrea Cavaliere, who appointed him to manage the kitchen in Nick Jones’ new club, Shoreditch House, and through the Soho House Group he took part in many international events, cooking for the Oscars Ceremony in Los Angeles, Art Basel in Miami and the Cannes International Film Festival.
