  • Orange County, CA (1888PressRelease) October 01, 2015 - While his restaurant just received the coveted "best service" award at the Golden Foodies presentation recognizing top Orange County restaurants, it was only the night before that he walked away with the "best author" honor from a pool of 300 contenders as chosen by the National Academy of Best-Selling Authors at a black-tie ceremony held at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. The category for which the award was presented, "excellence in collaborative works," was for the book, "Boom," a collection of inspiring stories co-written by "Chicken Soup For The Soul" author Mark Victor Hansen.

    Among his upcoming awards:
    The Italian Pasta and Sweet Manufactures' Association and International Pasta Organization will present Serato with an award acknowledging his culinary and humanitarian work on World Pasta Day & Congress at the Palazzo Italia in Milan on October 25. While there, he will participate in a 3-day congress moderated by Great Britain's award-winning journalist Alex Thompson, chief correspondent at Channel 4.

    The Italian Talent Association, which recognizes the achievements of Italians in the media, will present Serato with an award at the Chamber of Deputies, New Hall of the Palace of the Parliamentary Groups, in Rome on December 1.

    Serato will be the recipient of the Daily Point of Light Award for his work with Caterina's Club, the nonprofit named for his mother under which he feeds the motel children. A date for the presentation has not yet been determined. The Daily Point of Light honor is a national award that originated out of the White House in 1989 under President George H.W. Bush. Serato's story will be published on the Point of Light website in the coming weeks.

    "I am really overwhelmed by the recognition from these wonderful organizations," said Serato. "It is especially exciting because it helps bring the spotlight to the children for whom I have dedicated my life."
