In 13 days, (yes we’re counting down) we’ll be at this year’s Greenwich Wine & Food at Roger Sherman Park. As with past years, we’re looking forward to enjoying food and drinks from some of best restaurants in Fairfield County. Having eaten at Mediterraneo in Norwalk, we know that attendees are in for a treat when they taste Chef DeAngelis’ cooking. We recently caught up with him to get some insight on his cooking and background.
FP: What are some of your guilty pleasures? We call them foodie pleasures, hence the name of our blog!
AD: Haagen-Dazs Choc Choc Chip, my father in laws’ meatballs, and broccoli rabe on good Italian bread.
FP: Delicious list! If you could get on a plane tomorrow and visit any place just for its food, where would it be?
FP: Italy is definitely on our list of places to visit! Outside of being a chef, what are some of your interests and hobbies?
AD: I have a big vegetable garden and also raise chickens. I’m a die hard Jet fan with season tickets since I was 10 years old. It’s all about the tailgate though!
FP: Here’s hoping they have a good season! What is the one item in the kitchen that you can’t do without?
AD: Here are a few: Vita mix blender, microplane, and Japanese Mandoline.
FP: What three words would your friends and family use to describe you?
AD: Loyal. Perfectionist. Dedicated
FP: Thank you for your time. We look forward to seeing you and tasting your food at Greenwich Wine & Food!
