WHO IS THE MILLION DOLLAR CHEF, WALTER MARTINO
Italian Chef Walter Martino originally from Genova, Italy, Chef Walter Martino began his culinary career at the early age of 14. Throughout his adolescent years, he traveled the world, pursuing his culinary passion while searching for the perfect place to plant his feet. Upon arriving in Ibiza, Spain, he immediately felt connected to the energy, and ironically settled down in the very area his career would take off. His passion and culinary talent led him to work with top brands, cater to elite events, and celebrities such as Hotel Park Hyatt, Dolce & Gabbana Gold Restaurant, and the likes of Shakira, Jennifer Hudson, and Drake. Known as the “Million Dollar Chef” throughout Europe for his luxurious and artistic way of curating authentic fusions, Chef Walter Martino expanded his brand to Miami, Fl in 2015 after experiencing the same energy he felt in Ibiza, Spain. His global career and fame continue to grow, but he is more locally known for his exquisite restaurant, Kaori, located at SLS Lux in Brickell, Miami, Fl. Simply put, chef Walter Martino is a unique fusion of culinary, culture, and art. Behind his “Million Dollar Chef” persona is a vibrant passion for people, places, and food – the undeniable luxuries of this world – that he desires to help others indulge in.
