Why He’s Amazing Because he’s taking some of the world’s simplest foods—pasta and pizza—and elevating them with perfect technique and stellar ingredients.

On Flour + Water’s Style “We make the kind of food that chefs like to eat.”

Home Base “We built a massive test kitchen above Flour + Water, which has a library for all the cooks,” says McNaughton. “There are also two apartments—one I live in, and the other one is for our offices.”

Nonna in Training Before working at Flour + Water, McNaughton apprenticed at a pasta factory in Bologna, Italy. “It was basically Tom and a bunch of old ladies with rolling pins,” says Flour + Water partner David White.
