Our executive chef Mauro first came to Australia in October 1995, with a group of specialists in the food industry. The purpose of this venture, all the way from Rome Italy, to Sydney Australia, was to introduce the Sydney market to a whole new range of quality Italian antipasto, breads, sweets, pastries, and cakes.
The intended temporary stay for Mauro extended, as he had the opportunity to be sponsored by an Australian company in Beverly Hills to assist in expanding their business with his new ideas and products. Even though Mauro’s experience in the food industry ranges in all areas mentioned above, he chose to specialise in patisserie. Pasticceria Bafi was opened under the management of Mauro, exclusively for his products. This is where he met Lissa, the current managing director of Dolceroma. They worked together for a year, Mauro continuing to create new products and Lissa selling both retail and wholesale.
