Pop-up restaurateur, culinary show competitor and Jersey Shore chef, Britt Rescigno dives into the roots of her nickname, the “Angry Italian.” The intense chef opens up about the rush she felt stepping onto her first set kitchen, her competitive background and family ties to food. Caught red handed with a Ratatouille tat, Britt shares the special meaning behind her ink. She reflects on her upbringing, raised by a chef father, waitress mother, family restaurant-running grandparents and why it’s fitting that she scrambled her first egg by five years old. Britt talks about the classical French training, Italian cooking experience and New Jersey punch she brought to the Tournament of Champions and Chopped competitions. Then she reveals what the biggest challenge was, despite her meticulous calculations, strict study schedule and years of experience. She shares what made her time on the shows so emotional, the best advice she’s ever been given and the positive feedback she’s gotten from fans. Finally, she dives into her pop-up restaurant tour, why people can “go eat crow” and her perfect food day.
