(Soon the event will be available to the public, for groups of 10-14 people).

Chef Emanuel Screnci, is the fourth generation of a family with a long career in the gastronomy of Calabria, a tradition that began in a restaurant on the beach run by his great grandmother and then by his grandmother. The family has established a true culinary tradition in which Emanuel worked, first as a baker and pastry chef in the family business and then studying at the Soverato Culinary School, Calabria.

His desire to share the exquisite traditional Italian cuisine in various parts of the world has taken him to exotic places such as the Canary Islands, Santo Domingo, Singapore, Denmark and now in Panama. With the pride of his great family tradition, Emanuel brings to La Vespa an incredible fresh energy and enormous creativity that characterizes him.

I am very excited for this next chapter in my culinary journey,” adds Chef Emanuel Screnci. “I am happy that my skills will be used in such a cozy and reputable establishment, for having the opportunity to work with the Executive Chef of the La Vespa Group, Chef Mauro Clementi and all this great team.
