Today in the Loop Internet studio, Brian sits down with Pat & Danielle Padula, the power couple behind Carmela’s Restaurant and the renowned ‘Carmela’s’ Pasta Sauces. In this episode, Pat and Danielle take us on a nostalgic journey through their hometown roots of Dunmore Pennsylvania, and the flavorful escapades of their family-run food empire. Our conversation is a rich blend of laughs, tips on perfecting home-cooked classics, and the surprising versatility of their sauces beyond the usual spaghetti. We also peel back the curtain on the restaurant business, discussing the challenges and thrills of running a family-owned business.
