About Chef David Gualberto

David Gualberto, born and raised in the heart of Rome, Italy, developed his profound love for culinary arts under the tutelage of his classic Italian grandmother, hailing from Naples. Growing up amidst the aromas and flavors of his grandmother's kitchen, David imbibed the essence of traditional Italian cuisine, learning the intricate techniques and recipes passed down through generations.

At the young age of 20, David embarked on his culinary journey by co-founding a quaint bistro in Rome with his closest friend. It was here that he honed his skills, crafting dishes that reflected his deep-rooted passion for cooking and his respect for the culinary heritage of his homeland.

However, driven by an insatiable thirst for culinary excellence, David decided to delve into the realm of fine dining. Selling his beloved bistro after five successful years, he invested in his future by pursuing a master's degree in culinary arts at ALMA, the prestigious Italian School of Culinary Arts, under the esteemed guidance of Gualtiero Marchesi, a luminary in the culinary world. Armed with newfound knowledge and expertise, David embarked on a journey across Europe, seeking to refine his craft in some of the most esteemed kitchens on the continent. His tenure at the renowned two Michelin-starred restaurant Vun in Milan marked a pivotal point in his career, where he absorbed invaluable lessons in precision and innovation.

David's culinary odyssey then took him to Switzerland, London, and back to his beloved Rome, where he continued to hone his skills in Michelin-starred establishments, enriching his repertoire and embracing diverse culinary influences.

In pursuit of new challenges and experiences, David ventured across the Atlantic to the United States, where he found his home with Global Dining Inc. in California.
