Lino Sauro the head chef of Olio on Kensington St showcases an exclusive Sicilian recipe to our Manettas community.
“This is the style of food my family and I eat in Sicily. At home we’re surrounded by the ocean and olive trees, so obviously olive oil and seafood are very important. Sicily’s historic past also mean there’s influences from North Africa and Mediterranean Europe. It’s a beautiful cuisine that I believe will translate really well to Australia given the location and climate here.”
– Lino Sauro, Chef
