On the latest installment of Taste Matters, Mitchell Davis welcomed JBF Award winner Michael Romano, director of culinary development for Union Square Events and Union Square Hospitality Group. Romano discusses his latest book, Favorite Staff Meals from Our Restaurants to Your Home, a collection of staff meal recipes from the USHG restaurant family. The dishes are simple enough to be prepared in a snap, but sophisticated enough to please some of the industry's most discerning palates. Listen below to learn more about the book, his interest in Japanese culture, and his restaurant philosophy.
Taste Matters is a radio program dedicated to taste: as a sense, cultural construct, and culinary phenomenon. However much we talk about where our food comes from, how it’s produced, who prepares it, or what sorts of socio-cultural-political implications our food choices and eating behaviors have, taste is fundamental.
You can catch Taste Matters with Mitchell Davis live every Wednesday at 11:00 A.M. on Heritage Radio Network, or listen to the show afterwards right here on our blog. To check out past episodes, click here. Stay tuned for more!
