Description
 
A member of the opening team at Zahav, Chef Lucio Palazzo was invited by Michael Solomonov to helm Xochitl, his longtime Mexican venture, and so began Palazzo’s love affair with Mexican cuisine. Palazzo went on to work at Tim Spinner’s La Calaca Feliz in Fairmount and Taqueria Feliz in Manayunk prior to joining Loco Pez, which just opened its second location in West Philly. This January at COOK, Palazzo is going back, way back to his Italian roots. Palazzo was born and raised in Friuli, a northeast Italian region bordering Austria, Slovenia and the Adriatic Sea. The rich farms and vineyards of the Collio Goriziano, as well as memorable early meals aboard his father’s ship, inspired Lucio to pursue a culinary career. Friuli cooking is a composite of peasant fare, sophisticated Venetian food and influence from the Slavic and Austrian cultures. You’re invited to explore this off-the-beaten-path region of Italy as Palazzo returns for his second Friulian COOK feast: capasanta gratinata (scallop gratin with prosciutto and breadcrumbs); jota (hearty pork, bean and sauerkraut soup); zligrofi (Slovenian potato and onion agnolotti); brodetto al frutti di mare (Trieste’s famous seafood stew, served with crispy white polenta); and chestnut and apple strudel with vanilla ice cream.
