Peek in the Kitchen Q+A: Toro/Little Donkey

Fred Chang

Words by TasteBUds Editing Team

The dynamic duo - Ken Oringer and Jamie Bissonnette - gave TasteBUds a peek into their two restaurants Toro and Little Donkey: 

A peek into Toro: 

TasteBUds: What about Spanish cuisine inspired you both to create the concept of Toro? Was it a specific ingredient, dish, Spanish chef, etc.?                                                                                                                      Jamie: Spanish food is all about ingredients, energy and passion. KO was influenced by cooking and traveling in Spain, and I fell in love with the style of eating.

What attracts most people to Dominican Republic is its crystal clear water and wind sand beaches. But if you ask me, it’s the food that makes this island a must-go travel destination.

I’m not talking about the buffet, all-you-can-eat, resort food where you’re provided with mediocre selections from a variety of different cuisines. I’m talking about true, authentic Dominican food that you can only leave the resort to enjoy.

Restaurant Luis, in Las Terrenas, is the kind of experience I’m talking about.

After a night of binge-eating, I decided the morning after, why not more binge-eating? Even though it was storming outside, I would sooner jump off the Empire State Building than throw in the towel and not continue my food adventure.  So I hopped into a cab, and went back out for more desserts! I started with the furthest from where I lived, which was Dominique Ansel Bakery.

Hollah for Challah

Growing up, Friday nights and holidays consisted of good food, friends and family, and catching up around the dinner table. Being far away from home and trying to find new ways to recreate this feeling have landed me within a new community at BU Hillel. I have become more nostalgic and reflective of the ability for food to bring people together. Challah has always been one of the staples for me at these special meals, especially during the process of ripping off pieces to share it among friends and family. The final product carries sentiments of ritual and tradition, representing a sense of community.
