A Conversation with Walter Potenza

Chef, restaurateur, cooking school director/teacher, food historian Walter Potenza (from Providence, RI’s Potenza Ristorante) will be our guest on tonight’s BlogTalkRadio show at 10:00pm (Eastern Time). We pre-taped this evening’s show, on Sunday morning past, in Providence. Our conversation was truly fascinating; Chef Walter is a warm individual, passionate about food and its history, a true artisan in the kitchen, a superb conversationalist, and a great teacher – in spite of never having graduated from any culinary institution.

We spoke about his fascination with Italian Jewish cuisine, with the history of that cuisine, the research involved and the real reason he is so passionate about it.

Meanwhile, in case you missed it, please listen to our talk with Shaya Ostrov, On Dating and Marriage. It was an interesting, illuminating show on something that concerns every parent and every single Jewish person out there.

Please don’t forget to tune us in later this evening, at 10:00pm (Eastern Time), for a great conversation with Chef, restaurateur, food historian and superb teacher, Walter Potenza. We’ll be wait’n for ya!

    Oh gosh how perfect was this guest? My soul brother, floating in this wide world, making his precious mark one dish at a time! He said everything I think with my whole heart and soul. It does not hurt that he is so charming. Chaim, would you please give me his complete shipping address? I would like to send him a copy of my cookbook!

    Wooow, what an incredible conversation! I’m not Jewish myself, though there is some Jewish blood in my ancestry and the subject is fascinating to me, as well. As for Chef Walter, I’ve eaten at Potenza Ristorante (I live in Boston, roughly a 45 minute drive from Providence) a couple of times, and he absolutely practices everything he said on the broadcast.

    Both the Chef and the interviewer show a true passion for good food and a passion for culinary history. I thought the two were magnificent!
