 Alex Atala Biography

Firmly linked to his roots and looking towards the future, Alex Atala is, above all, passionate about Brazil, nature, gastronomy and life. Driven by challenges and a great sense of indignation, Atala manages, with extreme delicacy and technique, to turn his creative energy into unforgettable experiences for those who have the opportunity to prove his experiments. His aim is to explore all the gastronomic possibilities of domestic ingredients, combining classical basis with current techniques. However, with boldness and vision, Atala surpasses the boundaries of cuisine and acts as a responsible citizen, valuing the small producer, encouraging young professionals, and supporting the third sector.

Alex Atala was still a little boy when he had his first contact with the Amazon region, thanks to his family. Already at age 19, in the Hospitality School of Namur, in Belgium, Atala began his career as a professional chef. In France, he worked in restaurants such as the ones owned by Jean Pierre Bruneau and Bernard Loiseau, and he was a trainee at the renowned Hotel de la Cote D’Or. He next left for new challenges in kitchens of Montpellier and Milan.

Back to São Paulo in 1994, he soon drew attention for his performance while in charge of the restaurants Filomena and 72. In 1999, he began his career as chef-owner in the acclaimed Namesa. In the very same year he opened the D.O.M. Restaurant, as well as a new era for Brazilian cuisine, where the ingredients and food culture of his country are protagonists in an avant-garde, sophisticated and always surprising cuisine.

More than a chef, Alex Atala is currently an entrepreneur dedicated to gastronomy. Besides the D.O.M. Restaurant, a showcase to his more elaborate creations, in 2009 he made another contribution to Brazilian cuisine with the opening of restaurant Dalva e Dito, a premise that presents the concept of effective cuisine with genuine Brazilian soul and reinforces the belief of chef Alex Atala in the national ingredient and culture. A cuisine already known to Brazilians, but performed with technical rigor and standards of excellence.

Another step in his search for the enrichment of national ingredients was the launch of the products range Retratos do Gosto, a partnership with MIE Brasil, a developer of food brands focused on sensible consumption.

In 2012, the chef invested in another project: the opening of Mercadinho Dalva e Dito next to the restaurant of the same name, in the Jardins neighborhood of São Paulo. T

With international prestige, Alex Atala often participates in events in several countries, being constantly invited to give lectures in major gastronomic events worldwide such as Alimentaria and Madrid Fusión (Spain), Salone Del Gusto – Slow Food and Identitá Golose (Italy), Omnivore (France) and The Flemish Primitives (Belgium).

Atala has also been participating in every edition of Cook It Raw!, an annual, itinerant event that brings together top chefs like René Redzepi, Albert Adriá, Massimo Bottura and Pascal Barbot around specific ingredients of regions like Italy, Finland and Japan.

As a great scholar of Brazilian cuisine, Atala shares his knowledge of gastronomy in three books already released. The chef is the author of “Alex Atala – Por uma Gastronomia Brasileira,” “Com Unhas, Dentes e Cuca – Prática Culinária e Papo Cabeça ao Alcance de Todos," with sociologist Carlos Alberto Dória, and “Escoffianas Brasileiras,” with journalist Carolina Chagas.
