He's finally put his years of experience in the kitchen into a cookbook called "Bianco: Pizza, Pasta, and Other Food I Like."

"This book was really one to say, how do you start the conversation?" Bianco said, adding that it's not meant to be a "CliffsNotes" of cooking. "The secret is, there's no secret."

Steve Goldstein stepped into Bianco's kitchen at Tratto in Central Phoenix for a taste test and a talk with the chef.
