Daniella Malfitano is a chef, traveler, and lover of all things food. Her love and passion for food came about at a very early age as a result of her Sicilian family heritage and the fact that she was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Daniella studied at DePaul University where she earned a degree in International Studies with a concentration in Food and Culture. After completing her undergraduate studies at DePaul and getting her feet wet at many restaurants in Chicago, Daniella moved to New York to continue her educational experience at The French Culinary Institute. While a student and after graduation she worked at Prune Restaurant and Per Se Restaurant in New York City. Daniella graduated from the French Culinary Institute with a Grand Diploma degree in the Classic Culinary Arts program with highest honors.

You can hear Daniella every week on the syndicated radio program On The House” which is broadcasted nationally by over 300 radio stations. You can also follow her on her PBS food blog entitled Delicious Discoveries:
