Some of the best moments are those that are impromptu...al momento...improvisato. At least that's what I believe. Like a recent visit to Roof & Sky to take a few pictures for my last blog. I sent owner Michele Grande a text message the morning of our appointment asking to change the time from 5 pm to 1230 pm. Ok was his reply.
I didn't expect to see photographer and pirate Giannantonio. Or even gastronaut Nando. And I surely didn't expect one of the most unforgettable plates of pasta ...ever.
So during the interview, between a spritz a few appetizers and a glass of wine, the guys took turns stirring the calamarata pasta by cooking it directly in the pasta sauce, not boiling water. Like cooking a risotto, Grand explained...This way the pasta soaks in all the flavors of the sauce.
