World Chefs: Dacasto takes Italian home cooking to new level in Hong Kong

Italian chef Giuliano Dacasto poses at Aqua Roma restaurant in Hong Kong in this undated handout photo. Dacasto has done much traveling to perfect his cuisine, moving from the three Michelin-starred Le Calandre to Gordon Ramsay's The Boxwood Cafe and 2 Venti in London. But it was right in his family kitchen in Turin, Italy that he first learned all the tricks of the trade - and it is in Hong Kong where he plans to showcase his innovative Italian cuisine in a city with one of the densest clusters of Michelin-starred restaurants in the world.
