BIO: Chef and owner of Quince, Michael Tusk, draws inspiration for his Italian cuisine from his local famers and growers throughout Northern California. After graduation from Tulane University, he enrolled himself in the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York. Wanting to broaden his knowledge of French and Italian cuisine, Michael left for Europe and worked in numerous Michelin starred restaurants. While staying in Italy’s Barbaresco region, he developed his interest in Northern Italian regional cuisine.
In 1994, after returning to San Francisco he began working highly influential restaurants such as Stars, Oliveta and Chez Panisse and attributes much of his cooking success to Alice Waters and Paul Bertolli.
Michael Tusk and his wife Lindsay opened Quince restaurant in San Francisco’s Pacific Heights neighborhood in 2003 and it quickly gained national and international attention. The following year, San Francisco Magazine named Michael Tusk Rising Star Chef and awarded Quince three stars. It has a one star Michelin rating and has very quickly become a restaurant known for his high quality and innovative cuisine. Michael Tusk is available for speaking engagements, hosting, and corporate appearances.
