Salvatore Cuomo, who is now renowned as one of the best Italian chefs in Asia pacific, was born to an Italian father, a traditional Napoli chef, and a Japanese mother. As he grew up he was heavily influenced by his father’s cooking, deciding at the early age of 11 years old that he wanted one day to become a professional chef.
During his early years, he traveled back and forth between Japan and Italy, training himself in the skills of his father.
After these hugely important formative years, Cuomo’s first taste of recognition came as he began creating authentic Napoli Pizza for the Japanese dining crowd.
Even now, after many years in the profession, he is passionate promoting his signature Italian style cuisine, serving as Grand Chef of the Y’s table Group.
