About Viola Buitoni

I was born in Rome and reared in Perugia, Italy, in a family whose veins were of pasta and chocolate was the blood that ran along them. Following an idyllic upbringing in a family estate immersed in a life that moved to the clock of seasonal food, I moved to New York City in 1985 for a business degree. Soon after school, I found myself drawn back into the genetic and ingrained passion for food. After a few years honing skills in professional kitchens, I poured my passion into a catering kitchen and fine foods shop in the heart of NY's Madison Avenue. When I sold the shop, I followed my heart to San Francisco to start a family with my longtime love.
