The Vinny Brusco Show Podcast

Born in 1983, Christian Petroni grew up in an Italian family in Bronx, New York. He told Food Network in a 2018 interview that he spent "countless time in the kitchen learning to make Italian feasts" as a kid and he knew he wanted to be part of the restaurant industry from a young age. By 2013, Petroni had opened up the first of what would become five uber-successful restaurants in New York and Connecticut under the name Fortina, in the tiny but affluent hamlet of Armonk, New York. But prior to that, he had helmed several popular kitchens and partnered with three other New York chefs to open Cooked & Co., a restaurant in well-heeled Scarsdale, New York

Christian Petroni is a burgeoning celebrity chef whom you probably know about even if you don't realize you do. That's because Petroni has been a presence on the Food Network for years. In 2016, he appeared as a judge on Chopped Junior. Petroni has also appeared as a judge on Chopped and Beat Bobby Flay, among other series. Additionally, he has competed on Chopped and Food Network Star, which he won in 2018.

In this episode, Christian and I got into a bunch of different topics like old school 90's pop culture and we talked about Chef's culture, Chef's life. We also talked about what got him into the food industry and how he left the comfort zone of being a restaurateur and going out on his own and leaning into himself and trusting himself into the journey.
