Cooking with chef LUCA MORICONI - FOUR SEASONS BEVERLY HILLS

luca moriconi2

Luca Moriconi is the Chef de Cuisine of Culina and Vinoteca at Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills. “The quality of fruits, vegetables, and herbs in California is amazing, and each restaurant has its own unique philosophy about food, which reminds me of Italy.”

Chef Luca has been part of the Four Seasons family since 2008, beginning as a Junior Sous Chef at the Michelin-starred Palagio Restaurant at Four Seasons Hotel Firenze before serving as the resident Italian Restaurant Chef at Four Seasons Hotel Damascus, Amman and Palm Beach respectively.

Chef Luca’s love for sharing exceptional ingredients and exquisite dining experiences has been long encouraged throughout his time with Four Seasons, and he brings his authentic and inventive culinary point of view to the Hotel’s Italian dining destinations, Culina and Vinoteca in Los Angeles.

What’s Good Today at the Farmers Market 
Farm-to-table cooking class with MICHELANGELO PINTO

A native of Campania, Michelangelo grew up on a farm helping his grandparents, so the concept of farm-to-table food is in his blood!  

He moved to Los Angeles in 1993, where he landed a job with Antonio Tomassi at il Moro, and later on with Peppe Miele at La Trattoria, where he met his wife Patrizia.

Currently, he and his wife own and operate a very popular restaurant in Marina del Rey, Locanda Positano.

We are happy to have them at the Institute to share their passion for fresh market ingredients and home-made Italian food!
