Nick Stinziani


A native of Philadelphia, Chef Nick Stinziani’s love of food is homegrown. His first experience with cooking was in his Italian grandfather’s row home in South Philadelphia. There he learned about how food brings people together.From then on, he has been in the pursuit of great food, how it is grown, prepared and enjoyed. Sometimes that pursuit of food leads him to gathering his own chanterelles and exchanging them with other chef friends for their finds or showing students how to create a dish with the vegetables they grew in their school garden. He studied culinary arts at Johnson and Wales in Providence, RI. Nick has been working in kitchens from Philadelphia, to New York, Greenwich, Litchfield and now Glastonbury. All of these experiences brought him to Connecticut where he resides with his wife, little girl and chanterelle hunting dog.
