Stefano believes that cooking must be a shared experience. His job is to question and then to listen. He views himself more as a facilitator, imparting knowledge, answering questions, and coming up with a plan of what to prepare for a meal but always starting from the student-cook taste and preference. The goal is for the students to leave with the knowledge that they can return home to wherever they live and duplicate what they made at the school. His classes are about learn cooking skills and having fun.
