July 26, 2014 Cooking Demo with Anthony Strong

Anthony Strong might be known for his way with Italian cooking, but like many chefs, he cut his teeth on French technique.

The Iowa native began his career at a contemporary French restaurant in Minneapolis and learned discipline and refined technique at Le Bernardin in New York before moving to San Francisco in 2005, where he was hired to work at Delfina by James Beard Award winning chef Craig Stoll. There, he says, he is humbled by the simple things – like pizza dough, which he continues to learn about through annual pilgrimages to Naples and the Amalfi coast. Today, Strong serves as Executive Chef of Locanda, where he has taken a deep-dive into the cuisine of Rome. Strong was awarded Rising Star Chef 2012 by the San Francisco Chronicle and led Locanda to a Best New Restaurant Award by 7×7 Magazine.
