Chef Dino began perfecting his craft working in New York City’s preeminent kitchens including Alta, Marriott Marquis Hotel and Michelin Star Le Bernardin. An award-winning chef and accomplished writer, he’s been recognized as the 2010 Sears Chef Challenge Grand Champion, 2008 top three best cafeteria chefs by Fortune Magazine, and author of the cookbook “MODERN TOFU” delightfully, decadent and healthy.
An advocate of international cuisine, Chef Dino describes his style of cooking as adaptable; sometimes opting for no-frills, clean cooking that allows the ingredients to shine, and sometimes pushing the envelope. “Often I do the most simple form of cooking," Chef Alex explains, “but I’m not going to shy away from being really technical in cooking.”
When not in the kitchen, Chef Dino never stops moving, and in 2022, he was inducted into the World Marathon Majors “Hall of Fame.” So far, he’s completed more than two dozen marathons across the globe including Berlin, Tokyo, London, Toronto, Paris, Rome, Madrid, New York, Chicago, Boston and many more.
