Italian Cuisine Worldwide Awards 2010



Rogerio Fasano, São Paulo, BRAZIL

Rogerio Fasano

Building upon the fame of Fasano in São Paulo, one of the oldest Italian restaurants in South America, and owned by his family, Rogerio in the last two decades has changed the history of Italian Cuisine in Brazil. Elegance, finesse, but also simplicity, quality and authenticity are the attributes of the cuisine in all the restaurants he has opened and owns; although they are diverse in their format, they are consistently Italian. Many of them, employ chefs and staff trained in Italy but Rogerio personally overlooks each and every venue. This is, perhaps, the secret of his success, along with the fact that he knows Italy and Italian culinary customs inside out. No one in South America, let alone in Brazil, has done so much for the correct understanding of the contemporary Italian culinary culture still deeply rooted in its tradition.

 

Francesco Crisante, Caracas, VENEZUELA

Francesco Crisante

He is not a celebrity chef but he has spent his life to hold up the standards of Italian cuisine in Venezuela, the country that received the last vast wave of Italian migration. Francesco was himself a migrant, but a special one: he left Italy in 1957 in search of a better life as an already trained chef (he trained in Villa Santa Maria, Abruzzo, once known as the land of cooks). He was an unusual, almost unique case, among millions of Italian migrants who became chefs and restaurateurs in their new lands without having any training as such. For this reason he is the forerunner of the hundreds of Italian chefs, trained in Italy, and working abroad who have changed the history of Italian cuisine in the world. In the last ten years, Francesco and his family (in picture, with his daughter) have managed Vizio, arguably the best Italian restaurant in the Caribbean South America. He has also managed to survive the huge economic crisis that is swiping Venezuela, forcing the closure of hundred of restaurants in Caracas.

 

Lidia Bastianich, New York, USA

Lidia Bastianich

A new book, new participation in businesses promoting excellence in Italian food and wine, TV programs and many activities: once again, in 2009, as during the last three decades, Lidia made an exceptional contribution to the correct understanding of Italian Cuisine and culinary lifestyle.

 

2010 Italian Cuisine Worldwide Awards

Italian Cuisine Worldwide Awards

The mission of the Italian Cuisine Worldwide Awards is to honour individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to the introduction, diffusion and preservation of the Italian food and wine culture in the countries they live in or in global context. The Awards, promoted by itchefs-gvci.com, are granted annually to chefs, writers, journalists and business people, for the work performed during the previous year or their whole careers. The award receivers are nominated after a lengthy survey among the over 1000 GVCI (Virtual Group of Italian Chefs) associates and selected by an international panel of professionals, which includes the President and Board of GVCI. Some of the awards are granted to Italian professionals who have distinguished themselves by the exceptional work they have done for the culinary and hospitality industry, while working outside Italy.
