Tre Amis means 3 friends. Where is the 3rd friend? Our 3rd friend is you, our audience. Our aim is to bring you luxurious artisanal pralines from the Italian Alps, at an affordable price. So you can share them with your love ones over a gathering or even just a cosy night in by the fire.
How it all came about...
The founding of Tre Amis chocolates was spontaneous, like a light bulb moment to be exact!
It all happened in a cold English winter day, Luca and partner invited Sedtin and her partner over for lunch as they recently came back from their trip to Italy. Over a cup of tea and coffee, Luca offered Sedtin some chocolate she never tried before; one bite of it blew her away. The praline was bursting with flavour and melted in her mouth. From there, the conversation derailed and the day just went by, filled with more chocolate and good company, making us forget we were in the middle of winter for a moment.
The conversations led to Piedmont — a breathtaking Alpine region in Italy — and its delicacies and how there is so much delicious goods out there but not easily available to everyone. Good food should be shared with others. Those little moments with our loved ones and friends are the best! This, in result created Tre Amis.
Luca and Sedtin both work in Higher Education, one is an academic and the other an international adviser. Although they work in different institutions, Luca and Sedtin both share a deep love for good food and experimenting in the kitchen. Food plays a big role in both their cultures, where sharing good food with friends and family is a big deal, as good food and company create beautiful memories and are the salt that gives flavour to life. They allow us to enjoy the moment and the nostalgia it brings.
She is a senior international adviser who specialises in cultural adjustment and understanding. Sedtin has a passion for learning and understanding other people's culture, she'll happily sit there for hours listening to you talk about your culture and country. As sharing is not only just caring but also enlightening.
Hobbies and interests: Cooking, Baking, Eating, Traveling, Paper flower making, Growing veggies, and endless supply of Tea.
Random fun fact: Sedtin always have snacks (especially sweet treats) on her.
He is an Academic with an immense curiosity for the world and a lot of energy and this is certainly an explosive mix. Luca's ability to speak different languages allows him to expand his curiosity across the globe, as languages are the key to communication. When Luca is not teaching or doing exciting research he likes to push his personal boundaries with a series of small projects: he is a volcano of ideas.
Hobbies and interests: Cooking, Reading books, Writing books, Travelling, and Playing the mandolin (although he is really bad at it, he definitely enjoys the strum... who is around him a bit less though).
Random fun fact: Luca loves coffee. Short espresso (ristretto), thick, strong and without sugar, as coffee should be!
