Chef Pasqualino Barbasso's Pizza Acrobatic Show at Caffe Mondo

Two times Pizza Acrobatics World Champion Chef Pasqualino Barbasso returns to Lebanon for the fourth time to entertain crowds with his gravity defying pizza maneuvers.

This weekend, I had the chance to meet Chef Pasqualino, spending some interesting time around the furnaces. Besides getting a taste of authentic, delectable pizzas made true to Italian traditions from Chef Pasqualino’s hometown in Sicily, I also got to watch him perform right before my eyes. I was stunned by the showcase of his legendary acrobatic pizza-spinning skills. Definitely something you do not get to see everyday. Chef Pasqualino will be spending the week in Lebanon entertaining guests, especially this Sunday (December 1) for the grand finale brunch at Caffe Mondo.
