Carmelo Sortino is a former chef and pastry chef. Now he works with food in a different way, painting beautiful canvases featuring fruits and vegetables. He still likes to cook, and his recipe for home made ravioli with mushroom sauce is worth the effort.
You can see a large format Sortino in the lobby of the Listel Hotel, 1300 Robson Street in Vancouver, or visit Carmelo's website. (firstname.lastname@example.org or 604-251-3112)
