What would Tony Mantuano serve at his ultimate dinner party?
If I was serving the ultimate dinner party, I would certainly purchase them through purveyors who sell to Spiaggia. We just served a dinner in Naples for the Naples Winter Wine Festival, and had these little baby suckling pigs that we used to make porchetta. I would definitely do something like that, some sort of a protein like that. Before that I would do a pasta; but I think the pasta would probably have seafood in it. There’s always cheese. I think the ultimate dinner party has to have cheese. It doesn’t have to be crazy, but you certainly need to taste all the unbelievable cheeses that are out there in small portions, and a variety of cheese can really make a meal very interesting.
