Fare + Provisions: Rob Rossi Talks to Acquired Taste

Posted by Daniel Okorn, 6 months, 2 weeks ago

With Father's Day fast approaching, we're happy to share our latest campaign, Fare + Provisions with you. The collection includes an exclusive line of food, preserves and pantry items made by some of the city's top chefs. We've also partnered with Toronto-based food publication Acquired Taste to profile the chefs involved in the Fare + Provisions campaign + discuss their views on healthy eating, cooking for kids and the ceremony of family meals.

Acquired Taste had the pleasure of sitting down with the chefs (who happen to be father’s too), to discuss everything from cooking with their kids, to what it means to be a great dad. For our third interview we sat down with Bestellen’s very own, Rob Rossi. But considering Rob is not a father (yet), we decided to take a different approach and chat with him and his father Guido. The result is a hilarious conversation about picky eaters, Italian food culture and why Rob’s father is so proud of his son’s accomplishments.
