About this episode

Chef Massimo Bottura's restaurant Osteria Francescana in Modena, Italy currently holds the top spot on the annual list of the world's 50 best restaurants. But his creative and contemporary take on Italian cuisine wasn't always a hit with the locals. Bottura joins Stretch and Bobbito to talk about the early days of his now-famous restaurant, the humble roots of Italian cuisine and how he's using his influence to advocate against food waste and hunger via his non-profit, Food For Soul. Plus, Jon Gray from the Bronx-based food collective Ghetto Gastro calls in to talk about their plans to collaborate on a community kitchen project.
