Cory Lattuca, CSW

Executive Chef and Food & Beverage Director

Grimaldi’s Pizzeria

Executive Chef Cory Lattuca was born in Rochester, New York, but grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah. His love for cooking began in early childhood when he helped his grandmother prepare meals. The joy that food would bring to his family’s dinner table inspired him to make a conscious decision to stay connected to it for the rest of his life.

While getting his degree at the Scottsdale Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts, Cory got a job at Grimaldi’s as a server. What started as a way to help put himself through college became a career when, after several years as a cook, Cory became Grimaldi’s Executive Chef and Food and Beverage Director in 2005.

Today, he leads all food procurement and recipe development, as well as developing Grimaldi’s wine and liquor list. Cory wants to share his passion for food with everyone. He is a firm believer that happiness is cooking up fun and watching guests enjoy.
