Davide’s asparagus was so good, I was eating it out of the pan while cooking the pasta. How can each week be better than the last????

Love that I can make these recipes repeatedly, from my tiny RV kitchen, and that my 6 and 11 year old love them

Chef, Restauranteur, Yelp Antagonizer
Chef Davide Cerretini has been in the restaurant scene in the California Bay Area for the last 25 years. The owner of Cacciucco restaurant (the first Livornese cuisine restaurant in the world), and Chef/owner of the legendary Botto Bistro, he forged his new career and became a celebrity when he waged a hilarious and successful war on Yelp, which led to him starring in the movie Billion Dollar Bully and appearing on the Daily Show with Trevor Noah.

What he loves the most is to open people's eyes and guide them to a deeper understanding of what Italian food is all about. For him, it's not just about cooking. It's a lifestyle and an attitude. If you cook for yourself you should be able to laugh at yourself!.
