Chef, D'O

Davide Oldani began his career with Gualtiero Marchesi. From there he gained international experience: with Albert Roux at Le Gavroche in London, with Alain Ducasse at Louis XV in Montecarlo and Pierre Hermé at Fauchon in Paris. From there New York, Tokyo, California and Barcellona.
In 2003 Oldani returned to his home town, Cornaredo, and opened D'O, a restaurant that combines the highest quality with accessibility. A year after opening it was awarded a Michelin star. In 2008 Oldani was awarded the Ambrogino d'Oro by the Mayor of Milan for his contribution to the excellence of Italian cuisine.
A series of books followed. Cuoco andato e ritorno (2008), La mia cucina pop, l'arte di caramellare i sogni (2009) and Pop, La nuova grande cucina italiana ( 2010), Il giusto e il gusto (2012), in which he speaks of POP cuisine, life and the principles behnd his philosophy of food. Storie di sport e cucina (2012), emblemizes Davide’s passion for both. His next book, ChefAcile, based on his new television program The Chef, will be on the shelves in December 2013. His collaboration with "La Cucina Italiana" and with "Sport Week", the weekly magazine by Gazzetta dello Sport, in 2013 came together to produce a comprehensive collection of his recipes. His activity as a designer is born from keen observtion of his guests and their habits.
Tables, chairs, tableware and glassware are inspired by the POP cuisine philosophy: simple, functional, elegant.
D'O has become a case history at Harvard Business School and was published online March 2013. In November, Davide has been invited to give a talk at Harvard about his activities as an entrepreneur.
His approach to and organization of the workplace is not limited to the world of food, but is applicable to many different sectors.
