A few days ago I had the pleasure to be invited by my friend, writer Rick Zullo to be part of his new podcast: “The Fatal Charm of Italy“. I had a fantastic time! Rick is such an amazing host, and his insatiable curiosity makes for a very insightful conversation. You can listen to the episode online or subscribe to the podcast in iTunes, which is definitely what I recommend!
During the episode we touched on:
- The different perception on what “Italian food” means in North America, vs. continental Italy;
- The reason why food is such a big deal to the Italians, and why the Italians follow so many food “rules”;
- The difference in table service between Italian restaurants and North American restaurants.
