Daniele Panetta is a professional patisserie and culinary chef with more than twenty-five years of experience in traditional French cookery. Daniele has worked in a range of five and six-star restaurants, cafés and patisseries in Rome, Monte Carlo, London and Australia. He has built an extensive repertoire of skills in European Patisserie and Cuisine, excelling in French patisserie, specialty cakes, breads and cuisine. During his time in London, he even had the honour of baking cakes for the royal family.

With a love of fresh produce and cookery stemming from his early childhood, Daniele knew his destiny from an early age. By the time he was thirteen, he was studying classical French cookery in Italy. In an interesting twist of fate, Daniele studied the works of Henri-Paul Pellaprat who founded Le Cordon Bleu school in Paris in 1895.

Daniele’s connections to Le Cordon Bleu continued into his apprenticeship, where he worked under the tutelage of Le Cordon Bleu chef, Lucio Cappanari of La Sirenetta (The Little Mermaid) restaurant. This mentorship only served to spark Daniele’s passion of the French culinary arts, creating dishes for many Hollywood celebrities over the years.

Cappanari’s expertise led Daniele to work at a range of venues including the Ambasciatori six-star hotel in Rome, in an Italian seafood restaurant in Fontvieille in Monte Carlo and at Soho’s Patisserie Valerie before successfully owning and operating his own business and receiving high commendations for his specialty French culinary.

Taking his hospitality expertise to the classroom, Daniele is now a passionate teacher for the French-founded and global education leader, Le Cordon Bleu, where he enjoys sharing his expertise and traditional techniques with his students.

Let’s face it, no look is really complete without the right finishes. Not to the best of standards, anyway (just tellin’ it like it is, babe). Upgrading your shoe game. Platforms, stilettos, wedges, mules, boots—stretch those legs next time you head out, then rock sliders, sneakers, and flats when it’s time to chill.
