Anatomy of a Meal: Paul Bartolotta


Episode 35

How did a kid from Milwaukee become one of America’s finest chefs? Join us as Paul Bartolotta, one of the first chefs in America to elevate Italian cuisine to four-star status, shows us the fresh ingredients and the classic techniques behind his wonderful, deceptively simple cuisine. Then we’ll travel to Italy to discover some of Bartolotta’s inspirations: The age-old craft of making Parmigiano-Reggiano, and one of the most important fishing ports along the Adriatic. Back in the Gourmet kitchen, we’ll mix Italian ingredients with French techniques to amazing effect.
