This week on Food Network Obsessed, Antonia Lofaso chats with host Jaymee Sire about growing up in an Italian-American family in Long Island and the cultural shift she experienced moving to the West Coast at an early age. She talks about balancing being a restaurateur and mom, and her personal parenting philosophy. Antonia shares her process of conceptualizing the culture of a restaurant and her globally-influenced cooking style. She talks about how her life and businesses pivoted during the pandemic and documenting it all on video. Then she dives into the latest season filming Tournament of Champions and why it’s the hardest competition she’s ever participated in. Plus, the best and worst dishes she’s ever tasted.
