Show 69, April 12, 2014: Executive Chef Bruce Kalman, Union Restaurant, Pasadena, CA

Bruce Kalman on Union PasadenaBruce Kalman, who was previously the chef at the Churchill and Urbano Pizza Bar, has opened the 50-seat Union in Old Town Pasadena. It’s Kalman’s version of Northern Italian cuisine.

He’s known for making his popular pastas from scratch by hand.

He’s an alum from the exclusive winner’s circle of Food Network’s “Chopped.”

His much praised polenta is from Pasadena’s Grist & Toll.

Chef Bruce is a big believer in featuring what’s in season. That’s when fresh ingredients are at their peak.

On April 13th Union launched Sunday Family Suppers (Cena di Famiglia.) It’s three courses, including an ample platter of Italian desserts, for $39.

Take a look at Union’s Facebook page for appealing photos of the food.
