Nick LaRosa of Nook in Arcadia on Cooking for John McCain and Why the California Glove Law Doesn't Matter

Today, we're back for part two of our interview with Chef Nick LaRosa of Nook in Arcadia. If you're wondering about the photo above, the fun-loving chef was channeling his inner Iron Chef during our photo shoot. Today, we chat with LaRosa about the possibility of a second restaurant (hint: Nook Pasta) and learn about his favorite food memory. If you missed part one of our interview, in which he talks about working with Gio Osso, you can read it here.
