I have just written a cookbook that is a tight fit with Slow Foods philosophy. For me, family, food, and tradition are inseperable. I wrote “Italian Family Life Cookbook” to cary on my food traditions with my family and share the importance of food traditions with others.
With recipes and stories that are heartwarming, delicious, and easy to follow, I’ve shared my passion for cooking and my love for traditional family values. Whether it’s an Italian Christmas Eve dinner or the “dangers” of garlic bread you will appreciate how food, family and tradition are intertwined.
In “Italian Family Life Cookbook” I explain what it’s like to eat like an Italian in New York, using a combination of beautifully photographed traditional and imaginative new Italian dishes. The recipes are richly illustrated with poignant and humorous stories of growing up Italian, and just for fun, some language lessons on “Speaking Brooklyneze”.
The inspiration for this book came from my daughter who constantly called me for recipes. The easy to make recipes in this cookbook were written with her in mind - someone with minimal cooking experience.
This unique combination of family tradition and recipes is meant to inspire families to build and maintain their own customs. Whether it’s a time-honored eggplant parmigiana or an artichoke and gorgonzola risotto, there is something in this book for anyone who likes to eat!
