An innate scholar and aesthete with long-standing connections within the food, art and culture world, Gigi combines food with gastronomic history, anecdotes and folklore legends - offering members a service aptly named "Gastronomic Experiences" that teaches the art of Italian cooking, whilst exploring the joie de vivre behind every dish prepared.
Throughout her career, Gigi has curated various cultural and social projects blending visual arts, music, ballet, documentaries, antique jewellery collections and food.
