For several years Cristian has also worked with training agencies for the inclusion of disadvantaged young people in the world of work. You have to look at these guys, sometimes very difficult, coming from very poor or disadvantaged social situations. Cristian’s Love for cooking always breaks in these young people. Several of them have also managed to find a job in the catering industry thanks to the stimuli received in Cristian’s lessons.
