Chef Davide Palluda – Ristorante All’enoteca*

Davide Palluda was born in 1971 in Canale, where he lives and works. After his professional studies at the Scuola Alberghiera di Barolo, he had many formative experiences in the most prestigious Italian and European kitchens.
In 1995, with his sister Ivana, he opened the All’Enoteca restaurant, which is part of the Enoteca Regionale del Roero (Roero Regional Wine Shop). In 2000 he was rated the best young chef of the year by the Espresso guide and in the same year he was awarded a Michelin Star, which he still holds today. Chef Palluda is considered to be the creator of the enhancement of the Roero table culture and is widely recognized as one of the best Italian chefs.
“Canale and the Roero area have nurtured my dreams and accompanied my ambitions as a chef. I am aware of this and very grateful. For this reason I have done everything I could to repay them: always at the forefront and in the kitchen, chef-paladin of the territory and its newly found cultural identity”.
Roero is a true microcosm, a paradise of taste, with typical local products that last all year round and are known for their intense, clear-cut flavours and early ripening.
The Chef’s solid cultural background is reflected in a personal cuisine with clear intentions: a cuisine that knows how to talk about the territory, without necessarily being trapped into traditional rhetoric. A ride through the flavours and colours of the Roero area, with the aim of reconciling tradition and innovation, rural wisdom and modern taste, documentation and research, all while respecting the full harmony that is the beacon and compass of Davide Palluda’s cuisine.

The cuisine is conceived as a tale and description of the Roero and its cultural relations with the Langa, Liguria and the Savoy city of Turin.
