I had no idea he was Genovese until very recently. He certainly knows his way around a kitchen, and he seems very good-hearted and charming, but while celebrating your roots by buying and renovating an ancestral farm house is great, I hope he's learned Italian by now. :)

I also have to say it's a beautiful spot, as is most of the hinterland in Liguria.

Ed. It's coppa, not prosciutto, Brian, and always add the pasta to the sauce pan. :) Also, mi dispiace, but I'm not a fan of putting chunks of tomatoes with gnocchi. He does do a great job explaining gnocchi are supposed to be soft, pillowy, and light. No one in America seems to know how to make them commercially, so I never order them.

Upvoted for South Park ^

That song was the first thing that instantaneously came to my mind when I read his name
