Chef Logan McCoy

Chef Logan McCoy is a connoisseur of pasta. It comes naturally-- he has been rolling and shaping handmade pasta (and meatballs too, of course) for as long as he can remember. His grandmother shared her technique and love of the craft with him, a tradition he keeps alive today. “I think her cooking stuck with me for two reasons: the tradition and pride she had for her food, and the stories that went along each dish.”

If you had to pin Chef Logan down on his favorite pasta dish, you might not get a straight answer. They're like children: he loves them all. “Pasta is such a versatile carrier to deliver flavor in ways that are simple and comfort food-like, but can also be modern in presentation.” When cooking with his family, the go-to is spaghetti, cut by rolling the strings of his great-grandmother's chitarra over the pasta dough, for rustic, Italian perfection that would make his grandmother proud.
