1 Star Chef

Deluxe Private Dinner in Tuscany

Davide Cerretini, ‘The One Star Chef’, offers exclusive private cooking on-site in your apartment or villa during your stay in Tuscany. This offer is created for foodies and fine palates to have a  top-level dining experience. Attention to detail and the use of as many organic, wild-caught game and top quality products as are available is the priority for these very special dinners.

You and your guests can relax and treat yourselves to a delicious and entertaining afternoon or evening with a celebrity chef who has recently returned to his homeland after 30 successful years in the restaurant business in San Francisco.

Chef Davide will help you to tailor the perfect 4 course menu for you and your guests, working with you ahead of time to accommodate any special dietary requirements and ensure that the dishes and wine choices are top tier and compliment each other perfectly.

Being a local native of Tuscany allows chef Davide to have access to the best ingredients. He has bakers, wine makers and olive oil producers within his family, and each of the ingredients he uses are exclusively local and handpicked by him.

From typical dishes of the wine country area to traditional coastal seafood, his familiarity with the land and the produce is reflected in each plate. Each dish has a story to be told, and chef Davide is a guide to the origin and the traditions behind the recipe and ingredients.

He is also a connoisseur of local wines and if you select to include wine with your meal, he will provide the perfect prestigious bottle for your starter and main, and of course a dessert wine.

Notorious for his sense of humor, chef Davide is guaranteed entertainment. Watch his appearances on The Daily Show or the movie Billion Dollar Bully to understand why this chef became a celebrity.

During the dinner preparation you and your guest are welcome to observe and interact with the chef while he is preparing your menu, or allow him to create your dinner behind the scenes and serve you once it is done. You will be eating fine food and drinking delicious wine, but the atmosphere can be as casual or formal as you desire. 

Book this exclusive offer with confidence and have a memorable deluxe Tuscan private dining experience with celebrity chef Davide Cerretini.
