Gianluca Deiana Abis
Gianluca was born in Sardinia Italy and grew up spending more time in restaurants than in his own home. The energy of the restaurant life was addictive and he knew he had found his calling. He eventually graduated with honors from the I.P.A.S Istituto Professionale Alberghiero Statale (Arzachena - Costasmeralda) One of the top culinary art institutes in Italy.
This degree and his passion for food helped me get his foot in the door at a number of incredible restaurants (mostly fine dining, Michelin starred and five starred hotels) throughout England, France and Italy where he worked for several years in league with a variety of accomplished chefs.
In the year 2000, he moved to NYC where he opened, managed and owned a number of Italian restaurants and wine bars.
Gianluca"s dream is to share the beauty of life and food and the enjoyment he experienced growing up within the Sardinian culture of food. He always wanted to show the amazing difference when using NON-GMO, natural farm to table products and hope to pave the way for folding these foods into peoples’ lives through the recipes of his native land. he hoped to follow the sharing and fellowship around food that he think is an integral part of long life and longevity found in Sardinia, written about in the book “Blue Zone” by Dan Buettner.
Friendship, family, food and living; in the moment!
