A Look Inside the Pasta Program at Seattle's Spinasse

Spinasse is a nearly 8-year-old restaurant that specializes in traditional Northern Italian cuisine. And Chef Stuart Lane seems to be a perfect fit, given his background.

His hunger and curiosity for more led him to Italy, where he attended the Italian Culinary Institute for Foreigners. “It was really influential,” he says. “It was also the food culture — just the way they [Italians] go about thinking about food in general really stuck with me.”

In this “Table 42” vignette, Chef Lane dishes on the Seattle culinary scene and takes us into the kitchen to whip up one of his favorite dishes on the menu, Agnolotti dal Plin.
