Chef Scott Conant
Chef Scott Conant of L'Impero and Alto Restaurants in New York City does his own take on Italian cooking in New York City and The Guys are fans. They talk about Italian restaurants, regional Italian restaurants, Italian-American restaurants and ... well ... fake Italian Restaurants. Is there a preconceived prejudice against Italian cuisine in favor of French? Must you cook French to be four-star? The Guys don't think so and neither does Scott. They also discuss Scott's new cookbook "Scott Conant's New Italian Cooking." You can find Scott's recipe for a simple White Bean and Escarole Soup or a more ambitious Sauteed Turbot with Sea Urchin Emulsion.
