The Chef on 2 Wheels
Most restaurant-bound chefs count on the aromas of their cooking to herald their presence. Pino Padula, The Chef on 2 Wheels, announces his presence with the signature rumble of his motorcycle’s engine. As a private chef, he rolls up to clients’ houses armed with his cooking knowledge—gleaned in the kitchens of Naples during his first jobs—and the groceries for a preselected menu. He then uses private kitchens to put on a show, as well as manufacture a five-course meal. While customers enjoy the fruits of his labors, he spends time cleaning, leaving kitchens spick and span and bellies full.
