With origins in ancient Rome, Italy’s Ferragosto holiday calls for spirited feasting and revelry at the peak of summer. To celebrate, we’ve invited Jordan Frosolone, a passionate Italophile and talented Momofuku alum, and esteemed Italian cookbook author Domenica Marchetti to bring a rustic and indulgent taste of Italy to the Beard House.
