Meet the hosts:
Paul Tuorto is a freelance designer and art director working at The Assembly in Downtown Raleigh. Loving all things food related, especially pasta, he's focused recently on identity design for food & hospitality brands such as Benny T's Vesta, Crawford & Son Restaurant, Whiskey Kitchen, Pizzeria Faulisi and the soon to be open Oakwood Pizza Box.
Josh DeCarolis is the partner and chef of Mothers & Sons Trattoria in Durham, NC. DeCarolis introduces the first restaurant in the South to focus on fatta a mano—handmade pasta. The name, Mothers & Sons, is derived from the closeness DeCarolis experienced amongst Italian families such as his own–especially between mothers and sons-often centered around cooking traditions and the dinner table. We look forward to welcoming you to our table.
