Dan’s Taste of Two Forks and GrillHampton are so close, we can practically taste them—along with all the fabulous food and beverages that the two culinary events will showcase this weekend. The same holds true for Grana Trattoria Antica owner and chef Dave Plath as he talks about his passion for food, meatball shooters and what he puts on top of a really good burger.
What are you looking forward to at this year’s Dan’s Taste of Two Forks? Working with my two brothers again. One’s flying in from San Francisco, one from New York.
One food or dish that everyone should try at least once in life… My meatball shooters, of course!
Describe your relationship with food in three words… Passion, love, never-ending process.
If we looked in your refrigerator right now, what would we find? Not much! I work too hard. Probably some old lettuce. Right now, actually, we did go shopping, so some fresh vegetables.
What food defines summer on Long Island? Tomatoes and corn. Pretty much anything in season, that’s how I roll.
What’s one question a chef never wants to hear? “Can I change this?”
What has been your most significant moment as a chef? Opening the front door.
If you had two forks in your hands right now, what would you like to stick them in? One in a tomato and one in a good hamburger.
What’s on your burger? A good burger doesn’t need anything.
