Anna and Francesco, two hosts offering the warmest Sicilian welcome and true Tuscan congeniality, with a great passion for good food and good wine.

In 2013, their idea to create a space dedicated to food became a reality.

Francesco: after completing a degree in Business Administration and a Master in Health Management at the Bocconi University in Milan, he worked as a Management Consultant for a few years before deciding to leave it all behind in order to dedicate his time to his biggest passion: cooking. This path became clear to him after meeting Anna, who is now his wife and a source of inspiration, not to mention a great wine connoisseur. In 2013, he opened his food and wine consultancy business and opened his first shop in Marsala. He does not eat cheese, but the cured meats he selects for his platters are all unique. He gets an immense amount of pleasure from pairing traditional local dishes with the great Marsala wines, of which he has become a great connoisseur.

Anna: with a degree in Gastronomic Sciences from the Pollenzo Cookery School (an integral part of the Slow Food Association’s University of Gastronomic Sciences), she is the Tuscan soul of Ciacco. In 2010, she moved to Sicily for work, where she met Francesco. A tireless researcher of Italian and Sicilian wines and artisanal products, there is nothing she loves more than hunting out gastronomic treasures for her ‘putia’.
