Nothing will acculturate Latinos faster than converting them to Italian food Olive Garden-style. What could be more American?
In a cross-cultural marketing move, Don Francisco, the host of Sabado Gigante, will be tagging along with Olive Garden's "Cocinando un Sueño" contest winner, Margarita Ibarra, (who has been given a job at a Houston Olive Garden) to the chain’s Culinary Institute in Tuscany for a segment. Watch it tomorrow night.
Meanwhile, New Yorkers needn’t choose between Italian and Latin American food. Matilda in the East Village is Tusc-Mex while Williamsburg’s Miranda is putting chorizo in risotto and sprinkling gnocchi with cotija.
