Fantastic First, Chef Domenico Iavarone, Jose' Restaurant, Torre Del Greco (Na)


There are times when I look at a menu and have a hot desire to try something new...but then there are  times when I open a menu hoping to find the chef's classic.  One of his signature dishes.
That's exactly what happened during a recent visit to Jose' Restaurant in Torre del Greco.  There, in the kitchen of this spanking new restaurant I found an old friend- Chef Domenico Iavarone- and his classic Linguine con scuncilli alla puttanesca...Linguine pasta, sea snail and a puttanesca sauce.

I had the opportunity to be in the kitchen as Iavarone began the final countdown to plating up a plate for me...




Chef Domenico Iavarone




A first course perfect for this hot summer...why? I asked...

Fresco perché il gazpacho e' freddo e c'e' questo contrasto che a me piace...

It's fresh because the gazpacho is cold and I like this contrast, he answered.


He added this plate to his family 2 years ago and treats it as a beloved firstborn child...


Linguine pasta...






scuncilli/sea snails...





a cool comfortable puttanesca sauce with tomatoes and spices...

powdered capers and black olives...and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil...




Fantastic!
