Vince Scigliano inherited his passion for cooking from his Nonna, a bold and determined woman who won her husband with the woo of fresh-baked bread, fought her way inside a train's galley as it left Pier 21 to cook for her hungry children and at age 85, still bicycles to her grocer. With the same willful heart, Vince found his way across the country, from hometown Calgary to study under Mick Elliot at the Liaison Culinary College in Toronto, then onto the kitchen at Fox Harb'r Golf Resort where he met pastry chef-turned-wife, Annaleisa. Vince now lives in Halifax, is an avid marathoner and cyclist and his intensity fuels Gio's success, creating what he coins as Honest Food. "I challenge every dish to be the most authentic representation of its ingredients". Vince's tenacity reveals genius cuisine bittered by truth and sweetened with victory. Another win for Vince - the recent birth of his baby boy and no doubt, a family legacy of love and food will continue.
