On this week’s show, we meet the great Dario Cecchini, a world renowned Italian butcher. Dickie Brennan invited the Cecchini family to New Orleans earlier this year to return the exceptional hospitality Dario had extended to Dickie’s son, Richard Brennan III, who served as Dario’s apprentice in Italy.

Dario and his wife, Kim, join us in the studio to talk about their life and work in Panzano, a little village in Italy’s Chianti region. Then, we hear from Richard Brennan III about his extraordinary apprenticeship.
