NATALE GIUNTA 

Natale Giunta, originario di Termini Imerese in provincia di Palermo, a soli 36 anni, è uno degli chef più noti e rinomati della cucina italiana grazie alle sue ricette che rinnovano e reinterpretano la grande tradizione culinaria siciliana. Ristorare, accogliere, suscitare emozioni: sono alcune delle linee guida che indirizzano il lavoro dello chef. Matrimoni, cerimonie di prestigio, semplici eventi familiari, occasioni aziendali, manifestazioni pubbliche, e le infinite declinazioni di tutte queste categorie, sono le situazioni nelle quali si ricorre al suo servizio di banqueting e sono il cuore pulsante della sua attività. Complice della sua notorietà è certamente la partecipazione, dal 2005, al più autorevole programma di cucina della tv italiana, chiamato “La Prova del cuoco” e trasmesso da Rai Uno ogni giorno all’ora di pranzo. Un imprenditore in continuo aggiornamento, dall'innata mentalità sperimentatrice e all'avanguardia che guida la sua azienda in modo così personale e appassionato da esserne egli stesso l'essenza e l’anima ispiratrice.

La simpatia ed il carisma dello chef Giunta, insieme alla sua riconosciuta abilità nell’arte culinaria, hanno costituito la base di un’azienda florida ed in espansione specializzata in eventi e progetti d’eccellenza, nei quali la Top Cucina Eventi, questo il nome della sua impresa, è in grado di curare non solo la selezione ed esecuzione delle ricette ma tutti i servizi collegati: dalla ricerca della location più bella nel contesto geografico più particolare alla cura degli allestimenti più idonei, dalla scelta dell'illuminazione migliore per mettere in risalto luoghi e momenti a quella delle figure professionali più qualificate per ciascun evento. Non solo Catering e Banqueting quindi, ma anche wedding & events planning. Azienda Impegnata nella continua ricerca di nuove soluzioni che ridisegnino il concetto stesso di servizio e di soddisfazione del cliente, Top Cucina Eventi è sinonimo di alta qualità, staff preparato e sempre all’altezza,  materiali, location e materie prime d’eccellenza.
