Massimo Bottura & Wylie Dufresne at 92nd Street Y
In Italy, there are three untouchables: Football (soccer), the Pope and Mom’s recipes. Tradition rules – but Massimo innovatively and deliciously breaks the mold.
An evening at the 92nd Street Y with chefs Massimo Bottura and Wylie Dufresne, moderated by Travel+Leisure contributing editor Anya von Bremzen, as part of Bottura’s tour to promote his new book ‘Never Trust a Skinny Italian Chef’.
Bottura is the chef patron of Osteria Francescana, a three Michelin star restaurant based in Modena, Italy, which has been listed in the top 5 at The World’s 50 Best Restaurant Awards since 2010.
Dufresne is the chef and owner of the wd~50 and Alder restaurants in Manhattan, and won the James Beard Foundation’s Best NYC Chef in 2013. He is a leading proponent of molecular gastronomy. If you haven’t been to Wylie’s wd~50, yet – reserve quickly before it closes on 11-30.
