Cornelia Poletto

Chef Cornelia Poletta knows that all good parties start and end in the kitchen. Cooking, of course, has always been a huge passion of hers. It’s a passion that she also nurtures outside her restaurant, in her kitchen at home. Whenever the chef has friends over, she serves them fresh pasta vongole, or great cheese with an excellent glass of wine. Simple, pure, and without any fuss. Just like her dishes at restaurant Cornelia Poletto. But next to that, Cornelia is also interested in people and their stories. As a cook and host, she wonderfully combines her love for cooking and people at her dining spot. For her. It’s all about celebrating togetherness – and food is a great means to do that.
