Collab dinner: All in the famiglia

Jeffrey Michaud of Osteria, has been inspired in his cooking by his mother-in-law, Giuseppina Carrara (left), of Bergamo, Italy.

You don't hear too many mother-in-law jokes from Jeff Michaud.

The chef and co-owner at Osteria credits his Italian mother-in-law with inspiring his kitchen magic.

The Inquirer wrote about Giuseppina Carrara's visit from Bergamo, Italy, a few weeks ago, which coincided with the birth of a daughter (Gaia) to Jeff and Claudia Michaud.

In their downtime, Carrara and Michaud collaborated on a dinner May 23 at Osteria. See video.
