their time of need.
Damon Leigh is a
highly experienced, gourmet Italian chef
who has appeared on TV as "Chef Damiano
Leone". Being both health-conscious and
an animal lover, Chef Damiano prefers a
mostly vegetarian diet... but not the

He's devoted years to creating his own
personal menu of mouth-watering,
Italian-style vegetarian dishes. Chef
Damiano Leone is planning on opening his
own restaurant and calling it: Chef
Damiano's Ristorante VegItaliano!
