Watch a Del Posto Chef Make a Timpano With Grandma

New, 4 comments

Del Posto just posted a charming video of chef de cuisine Matt Abdoo learning how to make a timpano with his 90-year-old Italian grandmother, Valerie Mancuso.

It's a laborious process which consists of a drum-shaped pan lined with sheets of pasta and filled with various meats, hard-boiled eggs, red sauce, and macaroni. Everything is done by hand. In the video, scenes of Abdoo following along in his grandmother's kitchen alternate with scenes him at work at Del Posto. Though Abdoo doesn't mash tomatoes with his fingers or taste meatballs raw the way grandma does, his version seems to stay pretty true to form. You can now order that timpano, which serves four, at Del Posto for $100. By request only.
