David Rocco's Italian Basics
Let David Rocco be your guide to the staples of Italian cuisine: perfectly cooked pasta, fresh tomato sauce and more.
Sometimes, the fewer the ingredients, the better. So is the case at the new location of Frankies Spuntino at 570 Hudson Street in Manhattan. Chef/owners Frank Falcinelli and Frank Castronovo have let classic Italian dishes shine by focusing on essential ingredients like amazing extra-virgin olive oil and heaps of fresh garlic in their grandma's dining room-style restaurant.
You can find cured meats all around the world, but nowhere is the tradition as rich as in Italian cuisine.
