It's summertime and the weather is hot in NYC, which means Dave Arnold is fresh off a sweaty bike ride and ready to answer your questions on a brand new episode of Cooking Issues! This week, he's joined by friend, Executive Chef at Del Posto and proprietor of Pasta Flyer, Mark Ladner. Imagine the warmth of Grandma's cooking transported into an animated quick service setting. Over the past three years - this is the idea that chef Mark Ladner has been researching and he's finally ready to introduce it to the world. Tune in and hear what plans he has in store for Pasta Flyer - and make sure to donate to the Kickstarter page (3 days left!) if you want to see quick service pasta in your neighborhood. Today's program was brought to you by The International Culinary Center.
"We decided to focus all our energy on making the absolute best gluten free pasta. I feel like I've been able to simulate an al dente texture in the gluten free pasta, which is difficult." [05:00]
