Best New Idea for an Unemployed Chef
Copper Pot Food Company
Some people (OK, me) might view temporary unemployment as a chance to relax and take a respite from the daily grind. Thankfully, Stefano Frigerio isn’t one of those people. Working from home after he split from Mio restaurant, the chef turned his passion for jams, sauces, and pastas into a new career opportunity. Now Copper Pot Food Company is one of the most popular newcomers to the local farmers market circuit. Got a taste for some homemade ravioli filled with duck confit or rabbit? How about some sweet potato gnocchi? Frigerio’s got you covered…and sauced. His handmade pastas stand side-by-side with a variety of sauces crafted from local tomatoes and other artisanal ingredients. You can find him at six local markets, including those at 14th and U, Bloomingdale, and Fairfax.
