Pete DeRuvo Dishes on the Mouthwatering Italian Food He Grew Up On (You Will Be Jealous) and Praises Three Local Chefs (Although One Goes Un-named)
What's the hardest thing about being a chef?: Special family-time lost.
Last meal on earth: On the Amalfi Coast with all of my family for a week of sun and beach, a gathering with table wine and lots of seafood and whole animals to cook on the spit roaster.
What should be written on your head stone?: And for this kind sir, you shall be rewarded generously!
