Stefano Faita is the person (and the face) behind the Stefano Faita brand created in 2017 with his partner, Chef Michele Forgione. Together, they crafted an entire range of Italian products – sold in grocery stores across the country – all made from simple, good and authentic ingredients: pasta sauces, pizzas, pasta, sausages, panettone, tiramisù, hazelnut-cocoa spread, olive oil and more.
He spent his childhood behind the counter of Quincaillerie Dante, the family store located in Montreal’s Little Italy neighbourhood and grew up watching his mother Elena prepare pasta, tomato sauces and other Italian specialties. He very quickly stopped being a spectator and discovered a true passion for cooking.
Author of 3 cookbooks, food writer, guest chef on many TV shows like City Line, he also hosted CBC’s In The Kitchen, which still runs on TLN.
He has also opened 4 restaurants since 2013 in Montreal with his partner Chef Forgione—Gema Pizzeria, Impasto, Chez Tousignant and Vesta Pizzeria.
