A ruthless approach in the kitchen & a passion for excellence
Harry grew up in a large immigrant family in the rough and tough western suburbs of Melbourne and his first jobs in kitchens were an escape, of sorts, from the
tight reins his dad held over the seven kids. He’s prepared food for Formula One driver Michael Schumacher and he recalls the early days of Cecconi’s in Melbourne’s Crown Casino when the pollies would be seated on one side of the restaurant and the local mafia on the other.
Everyone has a Story and today I’d like you to meet Harry Lilai (executive chef Bocca Italian)
