In June of 1987, retired chef, Luigi Pavia got the culinary gig of a lifetime; he was hired to cook for legendary crooner, Frank Sinatra.
“Old-Blue-Eyes” was on a 7 city concert tour in Italy. He would call a villa outside of Rome his home base during that time.
Now, how do people get assignments like that? In this episode of Station to Station, Joe speaks with Luigi’s daughter Anna, and his son, Pino about Luigi’s assignment, the food, he cooked, and the concert they attended.
