Chef Daniele Corona, Executive Chef
Born in Naples, Italy, Daniele's upbringing was that of classic and traditional Italian culture, one which embodies the values expressed in the food and practice at Don Alfonso 1890--authentic, articulate and affectionate. In Italy, food is the foundation of Italian culture, it is commonly celebrated in its ability to teach, express and continue family traditions. Since his youth, Daniele's pleasure in food went above and beyond his palate. He learned to savour and respect the art of Italian cuisine, often studying and examining the ingredients and spices which have made Italian food one of the most influential cuisines in the world.
Much of Daniele's career has been centered among the most respected Chefs and restaurants in the world, many of which have been awarded with Michelin Stars. His experience and reputation in the affluent world of the Italian culinary arts would eventually lead him to Chef Ernesto laccarino. Ernesto recognized the talent and potential in Daniele which eventually earned Daniele the title of Executive Chef of Don Alfonso 1890 Toronto. Under Daniele's leadership, Don Alfonso 1890 was awarded a Michelin Star in the inaugural Canadian Michelin Guide 2022.
