At the age of nine, I decided that I would do this job!
One day in a restaurant, a waiter filleted me a sole serving it with only extra virgin olive oil and a few drops of lemon.
What fascinated me so much, was that attention, that love to create something so special from the perfect combination of such simple elements.
When we decided to create a Hotel Management course we wondered what was the path to follow. Many academies and universities some very popular in Europe but especially in the US, are running Hotel Management courses so why not. Studying the modules, however, we understood that what we wanted to do, it does not exist yet.
There is who can boast a wonderful career, lived between the tables and the restaurant kitchens to become Area Manager of a large chain of restaurants in London. I have gained my experience in various hotels, I built two and managed five.
I have been put in charge of creating the modules of this course along my career.
A real manager does not come directly from university’s benches.
You build it step by step, through the experience gained while passing into the many departments of a hotel.
So, that is how we developed our own Hotel Management Course.
Our students in the span of two years will pass through all departments of the hotel. They will operate in them and grow in the knowledge of what happens in each department.Read more ...
Who more than others, but at least if only for once in your life, we all have had the experience of being a guest in a hotel room, B&B or Agritourism.
So, what are the details that first catches your eye when you enter a hotel room?
Surely if it is neat and clean. If the environment there 'smell good or not. If the bathroom is nice and clean and there are towels.
Each of us has different expectations, the fact is that a hospitality 'structure must ensure a basic standard of high quality' in order to compete on the market.
Not only that, but also to offer customers a comfortable stay and a maximum quality service, The person responsible to ensure that standard is the housekeeper, professional worker who is still not enough considered.
It is the person who takes care not only that the room in which we are guests make us feel at ease and provide enough clean and impeccable order, it is a person who has a deep respect for his work and does so with attention to every little detail to make us enjoy a pleasant experience.
As many mistakenly think, the housekeeper’s duty is only to cleaning the rooms, the floors and the reorganization in general.
You were completely wrong, for this reason the housekeeper, to acquire all of its responsibilities must have the right preparation.
A preparationa that only a housekeeping course can give.Read more ...
In 2006 I left the family structure because it was time to challenge myself about, and to get out of that "bell jar" around you, where your father is keeping avoiding you making mistakes or taking action to fix them.
I accepted the job of directing the construction of a hotel from scratch. I had to follow all activities related the plannning , furnishings, personnel selection, analysis and positioning of the product in the market and last but not least: the start up.
So I would really served our course of Hotel Management!
I was very young and enthusiasm exceeded the sense of responsibility.
I arrived with the belief that soon we would have opened. In fact the building had a roof made and nothing else. It was yet to be done.
The owner is a builder who was building the hotel with the goal of putting "the cerry on the cake". Unfortunately there are many people that dispite having disposable income, come into this business without any real experience and not knowing where to start. Unfortunately there are many,which from a mistaken belief, they end up paying the economical conzeguenze.
If you have the financial ability to buy a hotel, before investing your money in the purchase, it is best to spend it to make a preventive market research.Read more ...
Coming up through the ranks, we have spent many of our years bouncing from one department to another. This has taught us that there is no department more important than another. Each department is important it its own right and the optimal management of each one is why the whole structure works in harmony, offering a standard only of the highest quality. The ultimate goal of each department is to satisfy the customer.
The Chef for example, is a very important figure in a hotel or catering environment, but none the less so is the waiter serving the tables or the bartender making drinks for the customers at the bar.
Very entertaining, are the myriad of TV shows where the Chef is considered the superstar of the moment. I‘m convinced that sooner or later someone will ask: who brings to the table those works of art?
This is where our Bar & Restaurant Courses or Front of House Courses come in to play.
But you may ask: why should I enrol in the Bar & Restaurant Course?
To enrol in a course is a very important decision.
Personally, I would enrol right away, because in my nature there is nothing more rewarding then the relationship with the customer and having the pleasure of serving at the table not only food but art!Read more ...

Tourism is one of the most profitable industries in Italy. According to ENIT, in 2015 there were 1,186 billion international tourists with a 4,6% increase since the preceding year. It goes without saying that the hotel and restaurant business go hand in hand: people who travel want to get closer to local customs and that often happens through food.
A hotel can be more important to some and less to others, however, there are still certain standards to be followed such as hygiene and organization. A hotel manager is a role of big responsibility. To become a hotel manager, one needs to start pretty early: studying hospitality management and get lots of experience and never stop being curious on global trends. One of the most difficult things is, in fact, retain clients, that is make sure clients always come back happy and satisfied.
Such a figure needs to have a broad and detailed preparation. The International Hospitality Academy of Senigallia offers a 2 years course to fully prepare you for such an important role.
Pastry is branch of culinary arts focusing on pastries and sweets preparation. We can say that the art of pastry is pretty recent as it developed throughout the centuries, and the sweet taste came from different ingredients, always more sophisticated. The way we know pastry now is purely European-style and it was considered to be exclusive by our ancestors.
Pastry is very much linked to chemistry because it requires precise ratios among various ingredients even though lots of variations can be made or for the rising timings for doughs. Unlike other sections in a kitchen, the pasty sections tends to be calmer and requires a good attention to details.
Today, pastry chefs are well valued and sought-after because a specific education is required concerning pastry arts.
Those who choose this career need to know what they are going for. As every cook, even the job of a pastry chef is very hard. It takes long working hours, and availability to work from dawn, flexibility and precision.
One of the major costs inside a professional kitchen is brought from raw material: food! Especially if waste is not managed smartly. According to a research done by the United States Department of Agriculture, food waste inside a restaurant can reach 40% of the total supply. It is sad thinking that there is such a big difference between countries who don’t receive enough food and some other simply waste it, unfortunately though, not all business choose to be sustainable and responsible on the matter. Actually, there are very few steps to make and few other habits to introduce on a daily basis. Obviously, you have to start with recycling, so that you can clearly separate your organic waste.
To reduce the waste percentage, you need to come up with something new, a new system or a dish made out of less prestigious parts of your ingredients, maybe by simply inserting a new dish on the daily menu. Your creativity will be tested, and who knows? Maybe one day you’ll come up with a delicious dish!Read more ...
