This hour on Here on Earth: Radio Without Borders, Jean Feraca talks to the chef at Lombardino’s in Madison who has just returned from yet another tour of Italy -- this time all by himself to little known villages where he ate regional delicacies you would probably never touch.
- Patrick O’Halloran, chef at Lombardino’s in Madison
- Peggy 10/28/07: "we just returned from a trip to Tuscany and Sicily. We totally agree with Patrick...grill on the wood fireplace with a little olive oil, lemon, and garlic and you have perfection. When we got down to Sicily, we often ate with the family.....ariancini, speidini, mellanzane, gorgeous icecream desserts (purchased). It was all magic. My favorite new discovery, though, was in Taormina when I ordered pasta alla Norma. My husband will have all winter to perfect it and I just found the necessary ricotta saldata at the new Fresh Foods in Brookfield. Thanks for an excellent show that was packed with great memories for us."
