  1. A talented chef indeed! I’ve never met Ben but I’ve been fortunate to enjoy his creative menus on a few occasions.

    A bit of a stretch but I lived in Myles Standish, worked for BU Dining at the GSU, now live a few blocks away from Oceana, and I love to cook. I missed my calling. ;)

  2. A good article.
    But why is this front page news? Did the restaurant sponsor it?
    Sometimes I feel BU is more concerned about food than academia.

    Check ratemyprofessor and actually read the end-of-semester evaluations please,
    some people should be fired long time ago. And we talk about food.

    1. Hmmmmm, now why would they be talking about food? What holiday is coming up that might inspire discussions about food? I really can’t seem to put my finger on it. :eye roll:

      1. BU Today provides a variety of interesting reads for the BU community. Their staff doesn’t read end-of-semester evals or look at hastily written comments on ratemyprofessors.com.

        And the school does read the evals. When I was in ENG, there was a professor who taught poorly. When the whole class wrote about it on the evals, they invited all of the students in the class to talk about it. If you scored one of your professors negatively on an eval and nothing came of it, maybe it’s your problem and the rest of the class was fine. I’m sure each school handles it differently, but it’s not a completely broken system. It’s certainly not BU Today’s problem. The food story made front page news because when you looked at it, it was a new article. It’s kind of weird to comment on one article about something completely unrelated. It won’t get your horrible prof fired. BU is proud of its alumni and sometimes writes about it. You should skip food articles if you don’t want to read about food.

  3. I am Italian and some things are wrong. We Italians are very picky when it comes to cars, bikes, art, football and cooking. The chief made ​​a big mistake in the risotto, apart the Americanized pronunciation of products. You do heat the extra virgin olive oil in the pot, the pot should be non-stick. When you put the onion oil should not be too hot, just warm, the onion does not burn. After you put the risotto for 3 min. and do it brown, after you put the white wine, a few minutes later, when the wine evaporating completely, you put the broth. The steps must be divided by a period of time. Put the products up close or together is a great mistake!
