This chef-owner wasn’t born with a silver spoon in his mouth, but he did find a golden fork in the road.
Jamie Parry, chef-owner of Another Fork in the Road restaurant in Milan, is one of the new generation of chefs who have the courage to take the risks to cull original sources for a new way of cultivating, preparing and presenting good that’s fresh, local and innovative.

The first dish to hit our palettes was a grilled lamb and potato gratin with braised vegetables, including– you guessed it– ramps. My favorite thing about this dish other than the incredible combination of flavors and textures? The meat tasted exactly like my mom’s cooking. Something about the seasonings transported me home and I couldn’t wait to taste more of this home cooked goodness. (read more)
