a Chef, what is your biggest
Pet Peeve when dining out?
the food sometimes in not real Mediterranean, and that the
legacy of my homeland may not
be kept alive. The Chef may have learned from someone who
was not from that area and therefore the dish is nothing
like what I grew up with in
Italy. Example: The names and combinations have meanings.
If you order “Amatriciana” – it’s a sauce from the Lazio
region (which Rome is part of), a specialty from
which should be served with Bucatini pasta – made to hold
the sauce in the center opening (like a long tube), giving
you a mouthful of sauce with every bite of the pasta. The
flavor, texture and story
