Mirko was born in Bologna (Italy) and made Australia home at the tender age of 24. Growing up with his Grandparents, Mirko was exposed to the home style of traditional local food and the art of making pasta, which later in life became the core style for his success.
Following the traditional restaurant/resort way of building experience, working across Europe, including the famous San Lorenzo restaurant in London’s Knightsbridge. The real change of pace happened in 1993, when Mirko began making his handmade, hand rolled pasta for restaurants, a skill that led into cooking classes all around Australia, television shows, publishing cookbooks and owning an award-winning restaurant.
His passion as actor kept growing and is now well established and often seen on mainstream TV/Cinema productions, his passion for food and education never left so he managed to blend the Arts with his rustic Italian cuisine skills and offer a very unique experience.
Mirko doesn’t offer only a dining experience but an ensemble of traditional methods, cooking skills, food knowledge, Italian traditions and nutritional aspects of the food we commonly chose to eat.
