Frank Ficarra returns as our first repeat offender as he introduces us to his new restaurant Leonardo's Italian Deli and Catering which opens daily at 4:30AM in New City, NY. His new classic Italian-style deli follows Columbus across the Mediterranean from Greece to Southern Jersey to remind us of the flavors of our youth.
Frank brought us his thin sliced melanzana and homemade mozzarella that proves once again he can cook better than your Nonna. We then discuss the history of Sicilian Sephardic migration before getting into the more religious debate over Parmesan versus Pecorino. We then finish our nostalgic trip by sharing our favorite first experiences.
This episode is sorry to:
- Parmesan Cheese
- George Carlin
- The Sephardim
- Uncle Guiseppe
- Epsteins except for Matt or Jeffery
- Metallica except for Lars
