Landi’s in the Press

New York—”Forgettaboutit!”

New York, here we come! Jamie and Bobby Deen take on the Big Apple by sampling traditional Italian dishes. First stop, Arthur Avenue in the Bronx and Robert DeNiro’s favorite joint, Mike’s Deli, home of the original Sicilian stuffed bread. David Greco shows the boys how to make the special dough and fresh mozzarella, which becomes one of the ingredients in the Greco (G-Bread) stuffed bread. It’s off to Mill Basin, Brooklyn to meet John Jr. at Landi’s Pork Store, home of the original rice balls. A dry mixture of different meats, cheese, herbs, spices and rice, the balls are deep fried and served piping hot. And finally, the boys check out the 110-year-old Veniero’s, a pastry shop located in Manhattan’s East Village and home of the unbelievable Almond Torte, a Veniero’s original. Carlo, a master baker, hand crafts 40 tortes in a day.
