A chef driven by Passion and Love for food.

Raised in Italy and attached to his home Region: Calabria.


Luciano Schipano is a young chef, born in Canada and raised in Italy; Red Seal certified with a serious passion for the culinary arts. His dedication to the art and science of cooking began at the age of seven when he created his first sauce. Over the years he has focused his passion on going back his origins to discover old recipes, adopt old practices and to rekindle the authentic craft of creating wholesome flavors.

Graduated with honor with a master of science in Demographics studies and a dissertation on Ecological footprint and population grown. He came back to Toronto in 2011 where works as personal chef with his business Schipano Fine Foods, Executive Chef at Nova Ristorante in Scarborough and chef/partner at Cucinato (a culinary studio on St Clair Ave West). Already Food ambassador with Jamie Oliver Food revolution movement, recently he has been called to serve as leader for Slow Food Toronto Convivium and Director of Board  with the Italian Federation Chefs – Delegation of Canada.

Luciano’s passion for the culinary arts extends from the kitchen to the classroom in Italy, where he taught for many years. His first and most important lesson for new students is always the same, the importance of cooking with amore!

After all, the first ingredient in everything we do well, is love.
