Dario Tomaselli

It's a far cry from the runways of European fashion houses, but Executive Chef Dario Tomaselli says he prefers to "strut his stuff" out the kitchen doors instead of down the cat walk.


A one time Model, Dario decided to leave the Fashion Arts for the Culinary Arts to pursue his passion full-time.

A scion of a hotel-owning family, Dario never forgot the exquisite meals the family Chefs would prepare for him, and patiently allowed him to savour in the kitchen beside them.

Now after almost 20 years of experience, he's created a legion of appreciative patrons and friends around the world.

Dario began his career in Montreux Switzerland, moved to a luxury hotel in Milan Italy and immigrated to Canada in 1988.
In Toronto, Dario expanded his talents at a number of trend setting first class restaurants, including the five stars Four Season Hotel.

He then moved to Cancun Mexico to assume the leadership role of Executive Chef at the Grand Melia Hotel. He returned to Toronto and devoted 10 years to one of this cities best restaurants and catering venues, receiving numerous accolades for his creative and acclaimed menus.

Dario has now embarked on an exciting new journey to spread his expertise and dedication to this industry to a younger generation, joining the Culinary Department of Toronto's reputed George Brown College as Head Culinary Instructor for both French and Italian Cuisines
