Striking a balance between showcasing and enhancing ingredients, creating harmonious combinations of bold flavors and textures, Jason goes on to recall highlights from his extensive career and what he’d be doing if he wasn’t a chef. Rounding out the show, Leiti welcomes Raimondo Boggia, managing partner of Obicà USA, to the show for a fascinating WineDown segment! This program was brought to you by Whole Foods Market.

“I love all types of food but really at the time we opened… we felt that the city wasn’t pushing what it should have been, especially at an appropriate price point.”

“Food is a shared reaction.”
