He is the founder of Plating Grace, an international food and faith movement, and is also a bestselling author and host of the EWTN show Savoring Our Faith. Fr. Leo’s background as a chef, black belt martial arts instructor, and award-winning break dancer and choreographer caught the eye of the Food Network, where he won Throwdown! with Bobby Flay. He sees food as a gift from God that nourishes your family, strengthens relationships, and makes this world a better place, one meal at a time.
