A born and bred New Yorker, I’m an Italian by blood (and at heart, of course) since my parents actually came from Italy. My father was from Sciacca, Sicily while my mother was from Sondrio, Lombardy. Despite coming from different regions, or because of it, love for food and cooking has been one of the mainstays in my family home life growing up. And I’ve always loved the dishes my parents prepared during special occasions, and even on regular days.
Here, I want to share my love for Italian food and perhaps also some tidbits about the regions that play a part in my family’s collective histories. And hopefully, readers that visit this tiny corner in cyberspace would come to love Italy, its cuisine, and lovely colorful culture as much as I do.
