60-Second Stir Fry: Jim Burke of Caffe Storico

Friday, March 16, 2012

If you can’t stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen. Jim Burke is in the kitchen all the time, as chef of Caffe Storico, the new eatery in the New-York Historical Society.

The café specializes in “little plates,” or, in Italian, cicchetti. Burke and his wife spent two years in Italy, so his lightning round of questions in this edition of 60-Second Stir-Fry has an Italian through line.

Notice how he answers with an appetizer when I ask him for his “favorite app.” I ribbed him thoroughly for this afterward.

“You’re too young to mess that up!” I teased, as he blushed.

You may want to correct the spelling: it's not "cicichetti" but CICCHETTI.

Otherwise, good story and great recipe.
