Meet the MasterChef 2023 Contestant Fabio - Week 4



Fabio, 38 is a tree surgeon from London. Born in Newcastle to an English mother and Sicilian father, he now lives in Crystal Palace with his partner.

How would you describe your style of cooking?

My food is centred in European cooking, specifically focusing on ‘cucina povera’ meaning ‘poor cooking’, a traditional Italian style of cooking which my father taught me. He was a chef and loves like me to focus on simple ingredients to make simple dishes that taste amazing.

What is your earliest cooking memory?

I remember cooking from around the age of 14, food was such a big part of the family and I was always involved in the cooking and eating of it.

Why did you enter MasterChef?

My partner is a big fan of the show and my cooking was the one who really encouraged me apply but I always secretly fancied a go so it was a good excuse.

What is your food dream?

I’d love to serve the food I grew up eating, fresh pasta and Italian inspired dishes on a pop up stall so a real casual vibe.
