Vince Ieraci was born in Calabria, Italy and migrated to Australia at the age of 4 years old with his family and grandparents. This is where his journey with food became the essence of everyday life, surrounded by the traditional simplicity of Italian flavours and techniques. Vince has been fortunate to work with some of Australia’s best restaurants and chefs including Manu Fiedel from Bilsons, Matt Moran from Aria, Pink Salt Double Bay and Doltone House. Determined to establish his own identity, Vince opened his very own Italian restaurant in Western Sydney; a home-styled fresh pasta restaurant called Riccardo’s. After 5 years he ventured into personalised catering for corporate and private clients where he met the likes of Alessandro Del Piero, Mel Gibson, Kyle Sandilands and NRL Stars Paul Gallen and Michael Ennis.
