FoodWise: Your Organic Kitchen and Traditional Pasta, New York Style (2000)
Satisfy your palate and your soul with healthy food that also tastes great!
Host Jesse Cool opens the program with a dish from her own cookbook, Your Organic Garden. She loves to take well-established, tried-and-true dishes and enliven them with her own special touch. Now, she works her magic on a fresh corn and bean succotash.
Next, Jesse greets her special guest, Michael Romano, Executive Chef of New York City's fabulous Union Square Cafe, and author of the Union Square Cafe Cookbook. Michael creates a traditional Italian pasta dish, Bucatini all'Amatriciana, which has a sauce made from fresh tomatoes with pancetta, fresh basil, and pecorino romano – prepared so simply, but so perfectly. You will surely want to try these delicious recipes yourself!
