(including an AWESOME bacon and butter tomato sauce recipe), (36:10) the prohibitive P’s, what can and can’t go on a pie, (39:13) what sandwiches you should actually be eating when you go to Philly, (48:58) the importance of connecting with his customers, (58:01) and his Holy Shit moments, including those times when Owen Wilson and Paul Giamatti came in.
