    Chef Davide Megna demonstrates how to make eggplant Parmesan.

    Davide Megna: Hello, I am Davide Megna form Amici Miei Ristorante in Rockville Maryland and today I am going to show you how to make Eggplant Parmesan from peeling and slicing the eggplant, frying it and then putting it together and then serving it. To make an Eggplant Parmesan, the tools you need are a small knife to peel your eggplant, a bigger knife to slice your eggplant, a pan with oil for frying and then you are also going to need a tray with some paper towel to dry your eggplant. You are going to need a pyrex to bake your eggplant and then a plate for serving it. The ingredients you are going to need for the Eggplant Parmesan are fresh eggplants, you are going to need some fresh Mozzarella Cheese, some Parmesan Regina, some Parmesan cheese, some tomato sauce. Also you are going to need some frying oil to fry your eggplant. Couple of safety tips, while you are frying if you have children around you, keep them as far away as possible and use the back burners of your stove to make it even safer. So before we begin our recipe for today, let me tell you a little bit about myself. I was formally trained at the Culinary School Institute of Turin in Italy, where I worked until the age of 22 and then I moved to United States and worked in Washington DC for about nine years and three-and-a-half years ago I opened my own restaurant here in Rockville and that's where we are going to make our Eggplant Parmesan today.
