Welcome to The Italian Chef, a web site dedicated to the art of fine Italian cooking. Here we will be bringing you classic and new Italian recipes from our Italian family, including our own Chef Paul Torre. Chef Paul has over 45 years experience cooking in some of New York’s finest restaurants, including 20 years with his own establishment. In addition to great recipes you will also be able to find feature articles, restaurant reviews and reviews of interesting Italian cookbooks. Our family and Chef Paul’s patrons have enjoyed the recipes you will find here for many years, and nothing makes us happier than to share them with a whole new audience. Enjoy!
