Chef Spotlight: Patrick Kaderk – Cioppino

Every month we interview one of the ‘Burgh’s fabulous Chefs. GoodTaste! Pittsburgh goes “behind the line” to put these chefs front and center! This month we are highlighting 𝗖𝗵𝗲𝗳 𝗣𝗮𝘁𝗿𝗶𝗰𝗸 𝗞𝗮𝗱𝗲𝗿𝗸𝗮 𝗳𝗿𝗼𝗺 𝗖𝗶𝗼𝗽𝗽𝗶𝗻𝗼. Share this post for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to Cioppino, Pittsburgh’s Luxury Cigar Bar & Fresh Seafood & Chophouse. The lucky winner will be announced on Saturday.

Favorite Cooking Utensil: My Kunz Spoon. A very versatile tool that is made for accurate measuring, plating and saucing, and is strong enough to hook into a stock pot’s handle and pull it across the stove.

Favorite TV Show: I’m addicted to sitcoms, my favorite would be a toss-up between Scrubs, How I Met Your Mother, The Office, and Parks & Rec.

Who Cooks at Home: Unfortunately I am not home for many meals, so my wife does the bulk of the cooking. I do try to take care of breakfast every morning for my daughters.

Favorite Recipe to Make: My grandmother had a very simple recipe for fried fish that she only did for Christmas Eve dinner. It’s plain and simple but when I make it, it makes me feel closer to her and my family in general.

Music Playing When You Cook: I try not to listen to too much music in the kitchen, otherwise, my crew would have to deal with my terrible singing and even worse dancing!
