Hotel Villa Athena - Pastry Chef  2

Pastry Chef

Federica Farruggia

"Born in Agrigento, I earned two degrees and began teaching in Turin. The day came when I decided to visit the school I always wanted to attend: IFSE CULINARY INSTITUTE in Piobesi Torinese.

During the course I had the opportunity to participate in several competitions and contests. I won the award named after "Marco Colognesi" for the best innovative dessert with my "Kolymbethra" a dessert in which I recount the experience in the most beautiful garden in the world in the heart of the Valley of the Temples. 

Another beautiful recognition I received within the Lavazza contest.

Attention to taste and aesthetic detail in my creations has always been a priority of mine. I did my curricular internship at the place where I dreamed of working "Pasticceria Dalmasso."  Soon after, I was strongly wanted in the research and development department of "Fabrizio Racca Desserts."

Finally at Villa Athena Resort I feel I have found the place where I can express my ideas and my vision of pastry. I have an artistic and scientific approach to pastry. I conceive each dessert as a small work of art. Nature is my muse. Sicily remains my primary source of inspiration. We have everything in our beautiful land."
