Will Walsh is a food writer and cooking enthusiast who brought his passion for regional Italian cooking to Houston diners as part of the Ghetto Dinner series with Revival Market chef de cuisine Adam Dorris. Unlike most maps on this site, today's is definitely ranked; the top slot is Walsh's pick for Houston's best pasta dish. Take it away, Will.
We talk frequently, and rush hurriedly to try, the new "black" in this little food scene of ours. But what about the food items that we take for granted? The things that are so fantastically part of our culinary DNA that we forget to tweet their awesomeness or Instagram them with a cute dog just to brag that we have ingested it first? That food for me is pasta. Admittedly I am a bit, shall we say, picky about Italian food and was in full eye-roll mode about the plausibility of even being able to fill these spots, but I wanted to try anyway. So I set out with some chefs and fellow Italia-philes for a 10,000 calorie romp through the Houston pasta scene, initially hoping to galvanize our favorite haunts, but dish after dish finding new amazing things to chew on. Needless to say, I may be eating sushi for the next couple of weeks, but the face stuffing has proved its worth.
