Meet Manu, our passionate Italian Chef

Dominic Fitzpatrick   |   April 3, 2023

We’d like to give a warm welcome to our training and development chef, Emanuele.

Early Life

Emanuele was born and raised in Sicily, Italy. Coming from a traditional Italian food loving family, this is where his passion for pizza began. Emanuele was cooking from a very young age, which resulted in him perusing an education in cooking in Italy.  So, it’s safe to say Emanuele is very knowledgeable in Italian culinary arts.

Moving to the UK

Moving to the UK in 2014, Emanuele brought the authentic Italian cooking techniques and expertise with him. Working as a chef in many restaurants within the food industry, more specifically Neapolitan pizzerias across the UK, until joining White’s Foodservice Equipment last year in August, as a development chef.

Scuola Italiana Pizzaioli

Emanuele is currently in training to be a certified training instructor through the prestigious Scuola Italiana Pizzaioli.

Emanuele is scheduled to be fully qualified to teach in May, in which we will schedule some brand-new courses.

Where to find Emanuele

You can find Emanuele on our social channels if you haven’t already. Whether it is his helpful tutorial videos or photos of his demonstrations, you will be seeing more of him across our social platforms.

Emanuele has already settled in with all the staff at Whites, he’s known as quite the character, managing to put a smile on everyone’s face.

For training or product demonstrations at our kitchen or yours give Emanuele a call on 01527 528841.
