Meet Chef Daniele Turco

the perfect person for your learning path.

The Gritti Epicurean School-Chef Daniele Turco

“To combine without ever covering up” – Chef Daniele Turco

Chef Daniele Turco’s motto applied to each of his dishes: to separate the singular flavors of the fish, meat or vegetables with condiments and sauces so that guests can choose to merge them as they wish in order to perceive the true flavors of each ingredient.  A motto of a  man of countelss innovations and enormous vision, displaying the love of his Venice’s culinary heritage in his award-winning dishes.

Venetian cuisine reflects the cultural influence of those who over the centuries have passed through the city and left their mark on its food scene. And while Chef Turco’s gastronomy is rooted to Venetian heritage, extensive travel and stints working abroad in locations as diverse as Malta, Sicily, Turkey and Marocco have led to him incorporating new gastronomic stimuli into his culinary repertoire.
