This week on a brand new The Main Course, host Patrick Martins is in the studio speaking with Fortunato Nicotra, Executive Chef of Felidia in New York City. Initially arriving in NYC to work for celebrity chef Lidia Bastianich in 1995, he notably took her flagship restaurant to earn three stars from Ruth Reichl from the New York Times in only three months time. Through countless awards and recognitions, Fortunato tells Patrick how he came up through the culinary world. By keeping his Sicilian roots close to his food, he cooked his way through Italy, working in several restaurants in Northern Italy as well as in Sicily. Chef Nicotra has appeared on numerous food television shows, including Food Network's Iron Chef and even shares with Patrick his story of preparing several meals for Pope Benedict XVI. Tune in to hear all about this accomplished chef, plus what he has planned for the future. This program was brought to you by The International Culinary Center.

"When you have a great ingredient, the best thing to do is have the ingredient speak for itself." [4:28]

"In the beginning, it was kind of difficult to have people accept the fact that inside the ravioli was pear and pecorino cheese, and then little by little it became everybody's favorite. It is a dish I clearly cannot take off the menu." [22:47]

Today on The Main Course, host Patrick Martins talks to fish expert and author of the book School of Fish, Ben Pollinger. They discuss how he had to come up with a different approach to writing a food book. His approach came naturally as a direct result of cooking at home. He also briefly discusses various fish seasons and his top three year round fish. In the latter part of the show, we pick up where we left off with the talk given by Carlo Petrini and Alice Waters during their 25th anniversary of Slow Food. This program was brought to you by the International Culinary Center.

"My approach to writing the book developed naturally as a direct result of cooking at home." [1:30]

"I think it's unrealistic to think that we'll never be eating farm fish, it's just an unreal expectation." [9:40]

--Ben Pollinger on The Main Course

"If there's no reflection or philosophy and there's just a bunch of handshaking, then it's not going to serve anything." [25:00]

"80% of the seeds is controlled by only 5 multinational companies" [28:30]

--Carlo Petrini & Alice Waters

Joe Carroll is a powerhouse in the food and drink world. In 2003 he opened Spuyten Duyvil, a pioneering bar in the Brooklyn craft beer scene. In 2007 he launched Fette Sau (German for "fat pig"), a barbecue spot that featured whole animal cooking before it became ubiquitous amongst diners. He's gone on to open steakhouse St. Anselm, also in Brooklyn, and another Fette Sau in Philadelphia. He's this week's guest on The Main Course, so listen in as host Patrick Martins blasts through news topics with Joe - covering everything from the death of the pumpkin beer to the emergence of offal. This program was brought to you by Edwards VA Ham.

"I don't like my BBQ to come pre-sauced. My feeling is that when you overuse anything, you're hiding the flavor of what it is you're trying to cook in the dish." [06:00]
