This week on The Food Seen Michael sits down with Sara Jenkins of Txikito and Alex Raij of Porchetta to discuss what it means to be an immigrant who cooks, the past and present of Italo-American cuisine, the truth or myth of our culinary ignorance in the 60s, and how cooking can be an act of love. They also recount their respective culinary histories, and what makes them want to live and work in the culinary world. This episode was sponsored by Acme Smoked Fish: a culinary mainstay in NYC for over 55 years.
