Bryan Voltaggio, "Home: Recipes to Cook with Family and Friends" (Little, Brown and Co., 2015)


Why are club sandwiches so good? This is among the important questions we get around to discussing during this podcast. Chef Bryan Voltaggio, a Top Chef finalist and Maryland-area restaurateur, met me at the Malibu Diner in Manhattan, known for blinky fluorescent lighting and a menu that includes cheap burgers and moussaka, to discuss his new cookbook Home:Recipes to Cook with Family and Friends (Little, Brown and Company, 2015), which comes out in a few months, his desire to open a restaurant in his house like my old dentist used to do with his practice, and whether or not chefs are artists. His wife Jennifer eventually slid into the booth to join the conversation.
