Cooking Chef teacher
She was a manager until she was 40 years old, then she changed her life. She has a traveller spirit, she thinks like a businesswoman and has a great passion in her heart for traditions and memories about her big family eating all together.
Stubborn, sensitive and passionate like all Sicilian women, Bianca Celano is a sui generis chef.
She had an experience as autodidact, then as a food blogger and then she took the difficult but conscious choice to start a new life and a new career, dedicated to food and to a new interpretation of conviviality.
Her cuisine is based on excellent Sicilian ingredients, carefully selected according to the season. She proposes dishes in a contemporary key, mixing flavors and playing with their contrasts.
In 2013 Bianca opened her restaurant named QQucina Qui, together with her husband Fabio Gulino, that is a loft with a single table in the old town of Catania.

On the 27 of January 2018 she decided to stop this experience and take a break from her job.
In May she started to move around Italy to tell her idea and show her love for Sicily.
