This class is presented by Chef Davide Galbiati, Sous Chef at Rosetta Ristorante, Crown.


Originally from the town of Lesmo near Milan in Italy, Davide began his career soon after finishing school in 2008.

He worked in Paris at the Italian trattoria ‘Bocconi’ for 18 months as a Chef de Partie, before moving to Joel Robuchon’s famed ‘L’Atelier’ restaurant in Saint-Germain, an experience that he describes as one of the hardest but also one of the most rewarding of his life. This was follwed by a move to London, taking a position at ‘Aspinall’ working with celebrity Italian chef Alberico Penati. Two years later he accepted the role of Junior Sous Chef at the iconic ‘Harry’s Bar’ Venice, and it was here that Davide met Neil Perry, who at the time was on a reconnaissance trip through Europe recruiting staff for his soon-to-open new Italian restaurant ‘Rosetta.’ Davide moved to Melbourne in 2012, and has been with Rosetta from the opening day.
