I’m a self-taught chef who has always loved the simple and fresh ingredients used in traditional hearty Italian cooking.
I worked in both Italy and Sweden as a head chef in some well-respected restaurant, before moving to England. Here I started an event catering company called Delizioso along with my wife, specialising in Italian Wedding Catering. Frustrated by the lack of good quality ingredients available, we started buying directly from specially chosen suppliers in Italy initially just to supply ourselves but we soon started selling to other restaurants and delicatessens.
In 2008 we created the Just so Italian company which imports and distributes good quality Italian products throughout the UK, supplying delis, restaurants, farm shops as well as to private people via our website. In 2013 we opened our first Just so Italian Delicatessen in Leicestershire, creating a little corner of Italy in a quintessentially British market town. Since then we have also created 2 new brands: Just so Hampers, supplying corporate hampers and Just so Fired Up, selling outdoor Italian pizza ovens.
