About Dario Tomaselli

Dario Tomaselli believes that food as an important impact on our way of life if respected from a sustainable point and connecting with friends and family. Reconnecting with farmers where food and product begin their journey and learning how to respect our cooking creations. Over 37 years of experience as a Chef has brought Dario to helping others in the restaurant industry and at home. It's a far cry from the runways of European fashion houses, but Executive Chef/Professor Dario Tomaselli says he prefers to "strut his stuff" out the kitchen doors, consulting restaurants and teaching young culinary chefs around the world instead of down the cat walk. Creating delicious meals feeds the soul. Dario decided to leave the family legacy of becoming a doctor for the Culinary Arts to pursue his passion full-time. A scion of a hotel-owning family, Dario never forgot the exquisite meals the family Chefs would prepare for him, and patiently allowed him to savour in the kitchen beside them. Now after almost 35 years of experience, he's created a legion of world leaders, appreciative patrons and friends around the world. Dario began his career in Montreux Switzerland, moved to a luxury hotel in Milan Italy and immigrated to Canada in 1988. In Toronto, Dario expanded his talents at a number of trend setting first class restaurants, including the five stars Four Season Hotel. He then moved to Cancun Mexico to assume the leadership role of Executive Chef at the Global Grand Melia Hotel. He returned to Toronto and devoted 10 years to one of this cities best award winning restaurants Oro receiving numerous accolades for his creative and acclaimed menus. Dario joined the Culinary Department of Toronto's reputed George Brown College as an International Coordinator of Post Diploma programs in Italian Cuisine. Dario has now embarked on an exciting new journey to spread his expertise and dedication further to his passion for connection and sustainability with food with dariotomaselli.com - - - - - - - - MEET OUR TEAM
