MEET THE CHEF
CHEF FABRIZIO ROSSI
Chef Fabrizio Rossi, was born in Rome,Italy where he trained in culinary arts under Chef Sciullo. Fabrizio left medical school to persue his passion for food and has worked in the prestigious hotel Habitart and at Casina Valadiere under chef Massimo D'Innocente.
Fabrizio has spent precisely half his life in the kitchen. That's what I know how to do. "I love eating and cooking because of my mom. She was a single mom and working all day long and coming home late and opening the fridge and making a five-course meal in half an hour after a long day. She was AMAZING! That's where my passion comes from. I always wanted to learn how she did everything so that I could continue her traditions in the kitchen".
Fab as he is known by friends and family, made Winnipeg his home in 2008. He is always proud to support local businesses and takes pride in using the freshest and highest quality ingredients in the food he creates. "My secret ingredient is the LOVE!" I love to create food that puts a smile on our guests face. The new "family style Italian dinners" we are creating at Nicolino's have allowed me to see the skills and recipes I perfected in Italy enjoyed in a traditional Italian family style dinner setting in my new home in Winnipeg, MB.
