If you have traveled through Italy and return home when you sit down in an Italian restaurant, remember the Italian culinary journey is never ending. At Sofia the Italian Restaurant in The Ritz Carlton Sanya Yalong Bay, a new Chef is bringing in a new taste from his own culture and heritage. Chef de cuisine Daniele Vacca hails from a small village on the southwest of Sardinia, an Italian island in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. “My ambition is to lead my team and teach them about authentic Italian flavors inspired with inspiration from the Mediterranean. My new menu will be authentic, home-cooked Italian fare,” said Chef Vacca. “Also, I want to use local ingredients, delivering food from farm to fork, ensuring the freshness of the raw materials from the land and sea. This, combined with imported Italian products, will create memorable meals brimming in flavor.”
