Gaetano, our Cesarino from Naples, loves entertaining and organizing dinners for friends. For him, the kitchen is a means of bringing people together. The table becomes an encounter, a convergence, an exchange of ideas, good cheer, a ritual. The table has always been synonymous with intimacy, closeness, friendly sharing. Sharing the same table always produces extraordinary conversation and debate.
Cooking is a healthy way to distract oneself from day to day problems. On the “no” days, Gaetano begins to fillet, chop, sauté , season, turn on the stove and cook.
