The Accidental Chef

Joseph Caputo ’77
Dog Ear Publishing, September 19, 2012

The Accidental Chef is the story of a man who took almost a lifetime to realize that the accidentals of his first fifty years were really the essentials he needed to blossom as a happy, productive chef who enjoys what he does, how he does it, and how he brings enjoyment to others. Joseph Caputo has enjoyed a lifetime of family, educational, and theatrical experiences. He has combined his passion for food, storytelling, and theatre into a recipe for success. Spending countless hours in the kitchen of his boyhood home and in exceptionally fine restaurants in New York City and worldwide have helped him to develop a unique culinary style. Blessed with keen perception as to which ingredients created the great dishes he enjoyed, he most often came home with a recipe all his own, and more spectacular than the original. Today, he is chef/owner of two successful businesses, Catering by Joseph LTD and Zuppa del Giorno, both located in Scranton. The book is available online through national booksellers.
