Brunch at Bobby's

Buon Appetito

Bobby fondly reminisces about his time spent in Italy as he comes up with an amazing brunch menu inspired by the flavors and food of the Italian Countryside. A sweet and savory Peach and Arugula Salad With Crispy Pancetta and Gorgonzola starts off the meal, followed by a Frittata with fresh Peppers, Onions and a Cherry Tomato Sauce. The meal wouldn't scream Italy if it didn't include gelato, so Bobby ends the meal with a Vanilla Gelato and Espresso Affogato, plus a Blood Orange Campari Prosecco Cocktail.Read More

Urban Green

No house is truly a home for Debi and Gabriele unless they can grow their own veggies and herbs. In their tiny Brooklyn backyard, Gabriele is trying to recreate a bit of the garden he has in Italy but if he's going to make it work he'll need help from some local folks who know how to make urban green. He and Debi go to Riverpark Farm to learn about creating a little garden plot in the city and then to Prospect Park with master forager Steve Brill to learn about what they can harvest in nature. Inspired by everything they see, and with some fresh ingredients they've collected, Gabriele and Debi make seared quail with a sauce from cornelian cherries and American black cherries that they gathered in the park, greens they've just picked, and polenta - it doesn't get greener than that.Read More

Up On Arthur

Gabriele is fascinated by all of the American food that is marketed as Italian, like a massive ham and salami sandwich that Robert brings home, which bears no similarity to any food Gabriele knows from his home country. But Gabriele is convinced that not all Italian-American food has strayed so far from it's roots and Robert offers to take him and Debi up to Arthur Avenue, the epicenter of Italian culture in New York, for some research. They make traditional pasta with a third generation pasta maker, mozzarella with a second generation deli man, they get homemade Italian salami from the local pork store, they play bocce and the visit the garden of a beautiful Italian grandma who hardly speaks any English at all. But what Gabriele really takes away from his fun-filled day is that Italian-American food is really it's own cuisine, neither completely Italian nor completely American is can be a wonderful amalgam of the two. And in honor of that concept, Gabriele makes his version of baked ziti, a beautiful cake of pasta with mozzarella, pork and red sauce, wrapped in slices of eggplant. He also makes a fresh green salad and, for dessert, cannoli with orange liquor and orange zest. Viva Americano!Read More

Happy Birthday, Debi!

The morning of her birthday, Debi comes down stairs expecting Gabriele to acknowledge the special day. Instead he says he's going to get a tattoo - what a disappointment! Debi is meeting he best friend, Robert, so she and Gabriele head out in separate directions. What Debi doesn't know is that Gabriele is conspiring with Robert to throw Debi a surprise birthday party. While Robert distracts Debi with a pedicure, a boat ride in Central Park, a delicious lunch and much more, Gabriele is running around like a crazy man, buying the ingredients, gathering Debi's friends and preparing a delicious meal that starts with a charcuterie platter, continues with eggplant parmesan and asparagus involtini and ends with a beautiful birthday cake! Debi is blown away, grateful that her friends are there and ecstatic that her husband did actually remember! Happy Birthday!Read More

Dinner Under the Tuscan Gun

Gabriele and Debi have been living in New York for a while now and Gabriele is eager to get his name known in the culinary circles of the City. To do so he wants to have a super Tuscan "coming out dinner party" for as many food luminaries as he can get to come. Debi agrees. Gabriele heads to Eataly, the premiere Italian market in the five boroughs. He wants to get inspired, see what's fresh and what sparks his imagination - it's a wonderland of Italian treats - and it works, he knows just what he's going to make ribolita (Tuscan vegetable soup), beef tartar, roasted potatoes and rabbit cacciatore. The big day comes and the guest list surpasses even Gabriele's wildest hopes - twenty-four famous foodies are there to eat including the likes of Drew Nieporent and Michael White, two of New York City's premiere restaurateurs and Dana Cowin, editor-in-chief of Food & Wine magazine. Gabriele has to work very hard to please such expert eaters but he pulls it off with gusto and everyone loves the meal. Gabriele has definitely announced his presence. Read More

A Tuscan Remedy

Gabriele and Debi are in the city for a stroll along a riverside park. As they look out over the Hudson they see majestic boats and Debi suggests that for their 11th wedding anniversary, which is coming up soon, they take a romantic sunset sail - Gabriele loves the idea. But later, back at home, Gabriele has fallen ill and Debi has to nurse him to health before they can take their cruise. First, she makes him some healthy juice. Then, with a fresh cut of beef that they've just bought, Debi makes Gabriele a traditional Tuscan broth - just like his nonna Lola used to make. Finally, with the meat from the broth and other ingredients, Debi makes Lesso Rifatto, a hearty Tuscan stew much beloved in Italy. The fortifying effects of this super Tuscan food works and the following morning Gabriele is up before Debi preparing for their boat trip with a picnic of pears and pecorino cheese, melon and prosciutto, amaretto cookies and bottle prosecco to toast their anniversary - what a romantic sail it is!Read More

Coney Island Calling

Gabriele and Debi are having lunch with their daughters, Evelina and Giulia when the girls tell them that they miss Los Angeles and their friends there. Debi and Gabriele are sympathetic to the girls but they also want them to bond to their new home, Brooklyn, and make new friends here. So they take the girls to Coney Island to show them what fun New York can be and, boy, is it fun. The girls go on rides and play games and shop along the boardwalk - it's a blast. The following weekend they throw the girls a party and invite lots of local families with kids. There is a cotton candy machine, pin the tail on the wild boar (the Tuscan version of pin the tail on the donkey) and a pi?ata. Gabriele serves delicious fish tacos with a Tuscan spin on guacamole, beet chips and a delicious and imaginative fruit punch. It's super Tuscan and super fun!Read More

Dinner: Impossible

Casino Craziness

Robert is visiting Mohegan Sun, and his mission is a real gamble. Robert must test his luck at a special Dinner Impossible casino. At stake is everything from the number of people he as to feed, to how many hours he'll have, to what key ingredients he may win or loose for the day. The Mohegan Sun set up a special Dinner Impossible casino just for Robert. He had to spin the roulette wheel to determine how many people he would be feeding - anywhere between 900 to 1,200. To determine how many hours he would have, Robert literally rolled the dice at the craps table. Robert faced his biggest gamble at the Black Jack table. Robert had to play three hands of 21, wagering not cash, but the three most critical ingredients for any chef: oil, salt and sugar. When he won a hand, Robert could use the wagered item. But when he lost, Robert had to figure out how to make thousand of hors d'oeuvres and three course sit-down dinner WITHOUT using the ingredient! Without giving anything away, it's safe to say the odds are always with the house. Add in a special surprise mini mission to make an additional VIP meal in the middle of all the mayhem and you've go one Can Robert turn this gamble into a jackpot meal, or will this be Dinner Impossible. Will Robert's luck win out, or will this be Dinner Impossible?Read More
