Chef Luciano DelSignore began his career working in the kitchen of his parents’ Italian restaurant, Fonte d’Amore in Livonia, Mich. Having spent summers in Abruzzo, Italy, where his parents were born and raised, Chef Luc moved to Italy as a young man, and trained in some of the best restaurants. After returning to the United States, where, at the time, most Italian restaurants had a heavy American influence, he convinced his father to remodel the family restaurant. Together, they reopened with a focus on providing an authentic Italian dining experience.
Today, Chef Luc owns Bacco Ristorante, a fine-dining restaurant with an emphasis on inventive, contemporary dishes. He also is the proprietor of Bigalora Wood Fired Cucina, a casual chain that serves authentic, Neapolitan-style, wood-fired pizzas. He credits his success to his European training, his passion for food and, of course, his reliable kitchen equipment.
We sat down with Chef Luc to learn more about his work, and how KitchenAid® Commercial equipment helps him create delicious dishes for his restaurants’ patrons.
