This week on The Main Course, Patrick interviews Frank Langello, Executive Chef of Babbo Italian restaurant in Manhattan. After graduating from the Culinary Institute of America, Frank began working at Le Cirque 2000 on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Three years later, he walked into Babbo with one copy of his resume, and he has been their Executive Chef ever since 2002. Frank tells us about the difficulties of running a busy restaurant with a very small kitchen, on a quiet street in Manhattan, and later, about the tragic effects that Hurricane Sandy bestowed upon his Staten Island home. This program has been sponsored by S. Wallace Edwards and Sons. Today's music provided by Shadowbox.

"[Losing my house to Sandy] changed the way I look at life, and it actually changed the way I work at the restaurant." [32:30]

In 1827, before Delmonico's opened, diners ate at cafes and boarding houses (inns), where the food was simply the food available that day from the farms. Diners had no choice of dishes, but ate the food that was served. Delmonico's changed all of that. Today's guest is Billy Oliva, graduate of the Culinary Institute of America and currently the Executive Chef at Delmonico's. This program has been sponsored by Heritage Foods USA. Today's music provided by Pamela Royal.

"[Delmonico's] is history. And when you walk through the door you feel that way." [5:15]

"Ireland is not really known for food but that has changed so much." [28:00]

--Billy Oliva on A Taste of the Past
