Column: In My View


Award-winning chef, Gary Danko, of Restaurant Gary Danko, attended the Culinary Institute of America. He also studied with renowned food author Madeleine Kamman, refining and expanding his French techniques and theories. “Once these techniques are honed, they can be expanded upon. That's when innovative cuisines start to be incorporated into a chef's repertoire." As executive chef for Beringer Vineyards and Chateau Souverain for six years he developed a deep understanding of American wines, and wine and food pairing. He has also worked at the prestigious Dining Room (Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco) when it was called one of the best restaurants in the US. In 1995, Danko received the James Beard "Best Chef California" award. Gary's success led to appearances on the Food Network and two PBS cooking programmes.

Danko opened Restaurant Gary Danko in 1999, generating instant critical acclaim.
