Join us Sunday at the main market tent for a cooking demonstration with Chef Fiore Tedesco and General Manager Adam Orman of L’Oca D’Oro as they select and prepare the market’s seasonal best for shoppers to sample.
L’Oca d’Oro (the Golden Goose) is a contemporary Italian restaurant with a focus on housemade pasta, cheeses and house-cured meats. Opening in early 2016 and located next to the Thinkery in Mueller, L’Oca d’Oro will have a full bar built around a wood-burning grill and rotisserie serving family-style entrees and sides.
Fiore Tedesco, Chef/Managing Partner, moved to Austin from New York City in 2011, where he has been the culinary director at Franklin BBQ, Texas Monthly’s Best BBQ, for the last two years and at La Condesa before that. While touring the world as a musician, Fiore fell in love with the food in Italy and upon returning from a European tour began staging at his favorite restaurants, first at Prune, then The Gramercy Tavern and Roberta’s. At Roberta’s he learned to master a wood burning pizza oven, fell in love with pasta making, and immersed himself in the world of charcuterie, salumi & dry aging of meats. It’s with this knowledge that Fiore will implement his custom made wood fired grill as the central cooking tool in the L’Oca D’Oro kitchen.
Adam Orman, GM/Managing Partner, has worked as a server, bartender, manager and sommelier at restaurants of all sizes and cuisines in New York, San Francisco and Austin for the last 15 years while completing an MfA in film production. He has crafted eclectic wine lists at 1550 Hyde in San Francisco and Austin’s parkside and managed one of Bon Appetit’s 10 Best Wine Bars, San Francisco’s Bar Bambino, an Italian restaurant with an ambitious salumi program. He will be crafting the wine list, running the dining room, leading the front of house staff and, generally, overseeing the party.
Fiore and Adam formed a New York ex-pat food bond in 2012, which resulted in the Dinners to Rock to Series at Franklin BBQ. They served dinners approximately every other week based on different music artists with each course inspired by a different album. Each week was a different party, with new music, a new setup in the dining room, new décor, etc. Since 2014, they have been serving examples of the L’Oca D’Oro menu at house parties and popping up at restaurants in every corner of Austin.
