Favorite Things: Torrisi's Spicy Sauce

Updated: Sep 2, 2019

I have complicated feelings about the duo of chefs behind the Major Food Group.. evil genius is perhaps the most accurate way to describe my thoughts on them. I remember the early days, eating at Torrisi Italian Specialties, a $45 prix fixe meal that was SO DAMN GOOD. Nowadays, with a gaggle of restaurants under their belts, each serving absolutely delicious, amazing food, that neighborhood, accessible feel from the good old days is long gone. I feel sad about it.


This recipe is for a sauce I first encountered at Parm, when it was the second of two enterprises the two owned, before the days of $22 cocktails and Zac Posen designed waiters' suits. Mixed into sauteed broccoli rabe, it is something I could eat every day.
