Milano – Tokyo

About us

Our culinary consulting is led by the celebrated Chef Wicky Priyan, owner of the extraordinary Wicky’s Innovative Japanese Cuisine based in Milan. Chef Wicky is much more than just a chef—he is a world traveler, a cultural explorer, and a culinary enthusiast.

Born in Sri Lanka, Wicky experienced an adventurous childhood that took him around the globe. Despite his privileged upbringing, he chose a life of discovery and learning. Before becoming a chef, Wicky was a karate instructor, a scuba diver, a criminologist, and a martial arts expert.

His passion for cooking was ignited during his travels in Japan. Wicky has spent over two decades immersing himself in Japanese culture, traditions, and food, becoming fluent in Japanese and falling in love with their ethos. His deep dive into Japanese culture led him to develop a profound respect and understanding of Japanese cuisine, especially the role of sushi within their culture.

However, Japan is not the only country that has deeply influenced his culinary journey. Wicky has explored various culinary cultures worldwide, absorbing the traditions and cooking techniques each place had to offer. This wide range of culinary experiences has given him a unique understanding of global cuisine.

Chef Wicky’s culinary journey eventually brought him to Italy, where he opened his sushi restaurant in Milan. He chose Italy for its genuine respect for ingredients—a value he deeply shares.

Today, Wicky brings his passion for cooking, his extensive knowledge, and his unique experiences to restaurants worldwide through his culinary consulting.

Our philosophy

We firmly believe that a successful restaurant rests on three fundamental pillars: quality of ingredients, mastery in preparation, and effective management. Our philosophy is reflected in how we approach each consulting project.

Quality of Ingredients: Selecting high-quality ingredients is crucial. We believe that using superior ingredients not only enhances the flavor of the dishes but also the overall dining experience. From fresh tuna for sushi to olive oil for Mediterranean cuisine, prioritizing ingredient quality is our top concern.

Mastery in Preparation: Cooking is an art that demands skill and dedication. We are committed to training restaurant staff in food preparation techniques, from the art of sushi making to crafting innovative dishes that blend influences from various cuisines.
