French Creole Meets Italian

Peter Sclafani

Ruffino's, Baton Rouge, LA

The son of a Baton Rouge–area culinary legend, Peter Sclafani continues the family tradition of fantastic cooking at Ruffino’s. We’ve enlisted him to prepare a contemporary spring menu, based on his restaurant’s signature blend of Italian and French Creole cuisines and made with fresh catch from the Gulf.
