Chef Joseph Cacace, is an old and good friend of ours and a fan of Italian foods, in particular of pasta Latini and Martelli. We met Joseph many years ago, when he worked at Sette, an Italian restaurant on Seventh Avenue in NY City. We had just started our wholesale program and Joseph was among our first big customers. I remember being amazed at the large quantites of pasta his restaurant could buy; I thought Joseph was cooking pasta for each dish on his menu, for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Not true, he just cooked very good pasta and everybody ordered it. Then, as often happens, the restaurant and Joseph parted ways; without him, the restaurant closed soon after. What a shame. Now, Joseph is consulting, but looking for a stable home. Any ideas? While you are thinking, Joseph just told me that he is opening another “Uncle Bacala’s” in Smithtown with Peter Hewitson and that he will use our Cru di Cures oil. Joseph comes to the warehouse often and purchases olive oils and pasta for himself and his restaurant clients. He knows about best italian ingredients and talks about them with passion (click on the arrow to watch the video). Grazie Joseph, come back soon!
