Eat in Aspen, CO: Fried Buffalo Mozzarella

“At the restaurant, which opened last summer, we embrace Italian dishes that are familiar and authentic. I’m Sicilian, so that kind of cooking is very close to my heart. Growing up, my family shared many memories around the dinner table, and I hope to recreate that kind of interaction for our guests. My style is ‘less is more.’ I keep it simple, try to stay seasonal, and concentrate on getting high-quality ingredients and using proper techniques. This is a good example of that. I get beautiful mozzarella, bread and fry it, make a simple caponata, and serve it with a nice tomato sauce. It’s a great way to start a meal at your home, and it’s a real crowd-pleaser. Who doesn’t like fried mozzarella?”
