FP50: Lunch at the U.N.

18 May 2007, Posted by Jennifer Iannolo in chefs & restaurants, podcast, travel

I recently attended a luncheon in the Delegates Dining Room at the United Nations in New York featuring a festival of tastes from Italy’s Piemonte region. Listen in as I speak with Chef Pier Bussetti, who headed up this team of the Stelle del Piemonte — Piemonte’s Star Chefs — to showcase the region’s unique pairing of tradition with ultra-modern sensibility.

I’ve also had some new ideas about that summer Dating Adventure, and think a dining club would be a helluva lot more fun.

Ugo Alciati, Guido (Pollenzo)
Alfredo Russo, Dolce Stil Novo (Cirie)
Mariangela Susigan, Gardenia (Caluso)
