Interview
5-min with Matteo
Why did you get into cooking?
I started my career by working in the food and wine industry in Italy. I've always loved spending quality with my friends and family while sharing a nice bottle of red wine and delicious food.
How did you become a chef in NYC?
When I came to NYC 8 years ago, I worked in several restaurants, in Manhattan as well as in Brooklyn, until I decided to open his own place. Cooking is a unique occasion to please my guests and have them discover new flavors and new recipes. As I always say: "open your horizon to the beauty and pleasure of food".
Why this recipe?
Italian food is more eclectic than we know it to be. This traditional assortment of Guanciale, goat cheese (Pecorino) and pasta is actually the original recipe of the famous Amatriciana sauce that was made only after the discovery of tomatoes. It’s a tasty dish that's a thousand years old that has not aged one bit.
