DEER VALLEY RESORT; PARK CITY, UTAH (March 14, 2022) – The first in Deer Valley Resort and DAOU Family Estates' premier Taste of Luxury Series, the world-class resort and vineyard are partnering with Forever Gourmet and KJUS to host 3-Star MICHELIN Chef Roberto Cerea for a weekend full of food and wine events including a meet-and-greet reception, personalized cooking class, exclusive eight-course dinner, and Sunday brunch taking place April 8, 9, and 10, 2022. The Taste of Luxury Series will continue later this year with two additional weekends that will feature events with world-renowned culinary figures and luxury brands.


“It is an honor to collaborate with DAOU Family Estates to welcome Chef Cerea to Deer Valley this spring,” said Deer Valley Resort Vice President of Food and Beverage Jacob Musyt. “We are thrilled to provide our guests with a memorable weekend and rare access to a 3-Star MICHELIN chef with four distinct culinary events. We look forward to creating many unforgettable experiences together as we introduce our new Taste of Luxury Series at Deer Valley.”


Chef Roberto Cerea grew up in Bergamo, a small town just outside of Milan where his parents devoted their lives to culinary excellence. In the 1960s, his father, Vittorio, and mother, Bruna, founded the family restaurant that earned its first MICHELIN star in 1978, and its second in 1996. After training in some of the world’s best kitchens and culinary schools, Chef Cerea returned to the fold, earning the family restaurant its third MICHELIN Star.


Originally designed to assist French travelers in the late 1800s, the MICHELIN Guide has evolved into the highest echelon of restaurant rankings in the world. The guide rates more than 300,000 establishments in over 30 territories across three continents, and the 3-Star designation, earned by Chef Cerea, is the MICHELIN Guide’s highest honor.
