Caleb Barber and Deirdre Heekin are the authors of In Late Winter We Ate Pears: A Year of Hunger and Love and Libation, a Bitter Alchemy. In this video, they discuss their books, the operation of their restaurant, Osteria Pane E Salute, using only local foods, and their mission to preserve heirloom Italian recipes that are being lost to modernity.
This version of the video is four minutes long. We’ll have the full 30 minute version online soon. Enjoy! …And doesn’t that carbonara Caleb’s making look ridiculously good?!
