Ms Jenkins is a New York chef with a background in Italian cooking. She grew up in Tuscany and she cooked all over Italy before landing in New York. Here she is famous for commanding two must-stops on any food-centric visit to the city. Porchetta (110 East 7th St. Tel 212 777 2152), her sandwich shop, is just down the block from Porsena (21 East 7th St. Tel: 212 228 4923) where Chef Jenkins presides over some of the city’s best pasta. She’s even written a book about it called “Four Seasons of Pasta”(Avery 2015) with Nancy Harmon Jenkins, who is her mother and a noted food writer.
