Executive Chef Fabio Colace
"When I was a child, I was helping my mum when she was cooking. I remember us preparing different types of tomatoes: tomato puree, peeled tomatoes, fresh pasta, wood oven bread. By the way, the city my mum comes from, Cerchiara di Calabria, is also known as City of Bread. We were baking it every week. This is the time when my passion for cooking and love for tradition evolved. I was 8 years old. When I was 16, I have begun a professional hospitality school in Amatrice. Afterwords, I have done several experiences in different restaurants, but when I came to Sheraton Rome, I have felt my fit here and decided to develop my professional life working in this place. First as commis di cucina, after one year as chef di partie, in 2008 I became an executive sous chef, and now I am an Executive Chef."
