Today, the chef behind Rezdora, Stefano Secchi, joins us to share his story, which begins with his family's restaurant in Texas, took him to the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY, and eventually to gigs in a number of acclaimed restaurants in Italy including Massimo Bottura's Osteria Francescana.
