About Emilia Strazzanti

Born in the UK, her passion for food started at just 10 years old when she began experimenting with her Neapolitan and Sicilian grandparents. Driven by this passion, Emilia trained in the UK  Professional Food Cookery at the young age of 16 and later went on to study Hospitality Management and Business Development.

Emilia now has over 18 years of experience working in hospitality:

Starting her career specialising in pastry and learning under the watchful eye of leading, inspirational chef Anton Mossimann, cooking for HRH in London and other members of the Royal family. She went on honing her culinary skills as Pastry Chef at renowned, luxury hotel The Dorchester in London.

Then she first travelled to Paris, working in iconic restaurants and 5 star hotels Le Maurice, 3 Michelin stars. Then to Milan to the 5 star Principe di Savoia hotel. Emilia worked for the Planeta family at their boutique hotel in Sicily and one of Sicily’s most prominent Michelin starred chefs, Accursio Craparo before returning to London to lead one of  London’s top fresh pastificio.

During her time in Sicily Emilia was captivated by the island’s ingredients and their history and the desire to continue forward the legacy and heritage of her nonni through food and the land. Inspired by this and to maintain her heritage that her grandparents instilled in her, Strazzanti was born, set up by Emilia and her sisters in 2015.

Strazzanti produces their own line of premium Sicilian ingredients inspired by the Sicilian land and their grandparents’ family recipes, importing these products to the UK, soon Europe and the USA.
