Chef Varinia “Vary” Cappelletti was born in Milan, Italy. She first began studying archeology and received her masters from the University of Siena. It was in 2000 that she started turning her passions towards the culinary arts. She used her background in Italian history to recreate traditional Italian recipes using only fresh and organic ingredients. In 2005, Varinia and her partner Edoardo purchased Giglio Bianco Bed & Breakfast in Florence, Italy. Since then she has been hard at work creating unique dishes with authentic Italian flavors for her guests. Through her work operating the B&B, Chef Vary started offering guests a special 5 course meal during their stay. She prepares the meals with local ingredients, original recipes and genuine Italian flare! Since offering the 5 course meals at their B&B, they have received many inquiries to travel to the U.S. and bring their culinary creations! So in 2008, they began traveling the states. They began their tour with a private dinner in Florida and a cooking demonstration at a high-end appliance showroom in Michigan. This then hatched their growing U.S. tour of personalchef appearances, private dinners, cooking courses and cooking demonstrations. In 2009, they added a cooking demonstration at Bloomingdales in San Francisco and 3 private golf course dinners in Colorado. Chef Vary and Edoardo import all of their olive oils, balsamic vinegars and other natural sauces from a small family run business in Tuscany. This provides true Tuscan Italian tastes no matter where they travel in the U.S. Chef Vary’s enthusiasm and passion for cooking is demonstrated in her attention to detail, innovative Italian cuisine and culinary masterpieces!
