Piero Buldo Obituary, Death – Piero Buldo of Toronto Canada has passed away. He was the youngest of three sons born to Elena and Mario Buldo on February 9, 1942. He was born in the city of Rome, Italy. He was a true Roman, very proud of his Italian heritage and culture. Piero’s favorite food was pasta, and he was obsessed with discovering and eating regional Italian specialties. He moved to London after attending culinary school in Cortina d’Ampezzo, Northern Italy, and then moving on to Paris to further develop and enhance his passion for the art.
After that, he worked as a croupier at the Bahamian Club in Nassau, Bahamas. He met his future wife Peggy there, married her, and had their daughter Francesca. In 1970, they moved to Las Vegas, where their daughter Monica was born the following year. Piero discovered his true passion for food after working in the gaming industry for two years. He and his wife Peggy co-founded the quaint Gourmet Corner at 700 E. It took some time to build a clientele, but with the help of his many casino industry friends, and one of our first customers Frank Leone, a lifelong friend and follower, the business flourished and was the start of many restaurants, including the most recent, Chef’s Roma Kitchen, where he was most happy.
An incredible cook and kind human being who shared his special talents and recipes with a large number of locals has left a lasting legacy. Piero was also a big fan of the Roma soccer team, and he cheered for them at every game, no matter what happened. On vacation, he was able to relax, tell stories about his time in Italy, and cook with his two cherished granddaughters, Chloe and Ava. This brought him the most joy.
He cherished his relationship with his daughters, Francesca and Monica. His presence will be missed. He had a sizable fan base. Piero’s mother, father, and brother Enrico all died before him. His wife Peggy, daughters Monica Buldo and Francesca Weisberg (Neil), granddaughters Chloe and Ava, brother Roberto (Antonietta), and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends in the United States and Europe survive him.
