How it all began

"A passion handed down for generations"

Daniela Del Balzo

Daniela’s passion for cooking began at the tender age of 14! Those early culinary skills were passed down to her from her mother and great-grandmother. As an adult, she abandoned a successful career in marketing with Alitalia Airlines to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming a chef. She studied at the renowned Italian cooking school “Gambero Rosso” and attended the diploma class at the French Culinary Arts School “Le Cordon Bleu.”

Eventually, Daniela established Daniela’s Cooking School, as a brand for her in-home catering and personal chef services.

Her food is delicious, her menus creative, her presentations simple and elegant, these are the elements of Daniela’s unique brand of "home-style cooking".

Her passion for cooking, her fun-loving personality and her lively sense of humor keep her clients coming back over and over again. You can’t imagine her delight when she sees sparks flying in the kitchen or her excitement when participants leave for home, impatient to try out a new recipe or a clever new technique! Being a chef has granted her the luxury of doing what she loves best: creating!

Food is a way of life. It arouses the senses.
