#110 Little Italy
The Little Italy neighborhood, including the Little Italy Lodge.
Rockfish Braised in "Gravy"
Stewed Fresh Figs in a Warm Marsala Zabaglione
John explores the Little Italy neighborhood, taking part in a community
dinner and talking to a 90-year old native.
This show is the one that John and the production crew loves. The
title is misleading, as the show is really about people, and not
buildings and streets. John has known Mealy since he was ten, and
he considers her to be his "Culinary Hero." The recipes
with Mealy had the crew rolling on the floor--she said some things
we couldn't include in the show. But her interview made us laugh
and touched our hearts, and those of us watching the cut version
in the editing suite had tears rolling down our cheeks. Our only
regret with this show is that we couldn't feature more of the Little
Italy Lodge and its warm and wonderful community.
