Is there alcohol in his pasta recipe? That's one big flame.

@calr751: uh? I think it's still healthier than a hamburger. ;) Also, you don't need to eat pasta every day.

pasta and hamburgers are both bad for health. fruits and veggies are good for health.

While that's true, a quick check on their official site shows that most of these chefs are seemingly of Italian decent.

Which begs the question of whether not this is largely a contest of the Italian diaspora.

Anyhow, good luck to Yamada-san!

They can't be any worse than those "noodle hot dogs" you find in the conbinis here.

You CAN have healthy pasta, depending on the sauce and obviously the ingredients added (as well as oil used). The noodles themselves, of course, are simply carbohydrates. A pasta dish made with healthy ingredients is by FAR healthier than a hamburger.

Anyway, would love to go there and eat a few dishes.

I learnt my "art of pasta" from when I lived in Italy, making it from the basic ingredients, also pizza making.
