Tony Mantuano, Chef/Partner of Spiaggia Restaurant in Chicago, was a contestant on “Top Chef Masters” and is an influential culinary force, particularly in Italian cuisine. In addition to his many accolades, President Barack Obama called Chef Mantuano one of his favorite chefs. For our second 5th Wednesday episode (where we introduce you to impactful chefs or organizations and discuss the positive social impact they have on their communities), we sat at Soho House Chicago as part of a live radio series with Lumpen Radio. During this episode, Mantuano talks about his work with the Academy for Global Citizenship in Chicago; and his commitment to Alex’s Lemonade, an American pediatric cancer charity. We also have some fun and dive in to the history behind 5 classic Italian dishes.
