Meet John Cosentino
After earning a Bachelor degree in the United States, FIMs Founder John Cosentino went on to play baseball in Italy in 2003. It was there where he came to the realization that fresh and local ingredients would be the tools of his career trade. He immediately returned to Toronto and enrolled in George Brown Culinary School for a 2 year apprenticeship program. While enrolled, he carried out a number of stages, predominately at York Regions prestigious Copper Creek Golf Club and Banquet Facility under his mentor Gianpiero Tondina C.C.C. In 2008, John went abroad, back to his family roots and travelled north eastern Italy, studying under world recognized chefs Giancarlo Perbellini and Valentino Marcattilii, and in some of the most well recognized food establishments in the country.
Meet Danielle Cosentino
Danielle has always had an interest in health and wellness and growing up on the ever-so-popular Mediterranean diet in a family of grocers has greatly enhanced her passion for food.
Upon graduating with a diploma in Holistic Nutrition in 2008 she was determined to prove to skeptics that food could be healthy without compromising flavour and satisfaction. This led her to the west coast where she attended Bauman College in San Francisco and became certified as a Natural Chef.
Danielle's passion for delicious whole-foods lead to the creation of ‘Danielle’s Naturals’, a line of healthy blood sugar friendly snacks. As she continues to grow her product line she is thrilled to team up with Food In Motion to create customized health-promoting menus using local and seasonal ingredients.
