Luca

Luca Aversa

Bariatric Success Chef

Luca was born in Naples, Italy. A city with a food culture dating back thousands of years. As a child, he had a serious sweet tooth & he always pestered his mother into baking him cakes. Eventually she thought it would be a good idea to teach him how to bake, so at 7 years old, he became a little baker!

By the time Luca was a teenager, his mother had taught him all the cooking tricks she had learned from her mother growing up, and so the long family tradition of home-cooking continued through him. His love for food, travel & history led him to a position as Chef on Superyachts and to hosting much loved 5 Star Rated Food Experiences both in Rome, and on the Amalfi Coast.

Luca’s enjoyment of cooking is a lifelong hobby, as well as reading, playing musical instruments and watching Horror films in the dark!
