At his recent Naples-inspired Beard House dinner, New Jersey–based chef Michael Carrino crafted a tantalizing menu featuring his innovative, Italian-inflected culinary sensibility and superb pairings from rocker-turned-winemaker Maynard James Keenan’s exclusive portfolio. Watch the video above to go behind the scenes at Carrino’s dinner and learn the poignant story of how cooking helped the now-acclaimed chef manage a neurological disability, overcome social anxiety, and funnel his creativity into a career he’s deeply passionate about.
Michael Carrino is the chef/owner at Pig & Prince Restaurant & Gastrolounge in Montclair, NJ. This was his sixth time cooking at the Beard House, and he will be joining us again for our Wild About Game dinner in November.
