Fedelini alla Chitarra with Eggplant, Zucchini, and Umbrian Black Truffles

“For Italian food to be authentic,” Tony always says, “it must also be creative. It must be conscious of the tradition that came before it. And it must bend that tradition to be truly authentic.”

Tony knows very well that in every town in Italy, they cook the same ingredients as the next town. But they always have a slightly different interpretation of those ingredients that makes their version “local.” That’s the essence of GREAT Italian cuisine.

Tony and his team of chefs are always experimenting in the kitchen with traditional Italian ingredients.

This month Tony’s menu features Fedelini alla Chitarra — long noodles fashioned using wires that resemble guitar strings (hence the name chitarra or guitar) — tossed with eggplant, zucchini, and earthy Umbrian black truffles. Each of these ingredients is classically Italian in origin: it’s the way that Tony puts them together that makes them so special.
