Zeppole

Growing up in Mt. Vernon, NY, Our Lady of Victory Church had an Italian festival every summer (we just called it the feast). I always looked forward to this; they blocked off a whole city block and had all of the typical festival games and food. My favorite part was the Zeppole, fluffy fried balls of dough…

Arancini with Fig, Prosciutto and Gorgonzola

Arancini, stuffed risotto balls, are a traditional street food in Sicily. The most common stuffing is meat sauce, peas and cheese. However, I wanted to try something a little different and the the inspiration for this version actually came from a pizza.

Bolognese Sauce (Ragu alla Bolognese)

Just about every region of Italy has it’s own version of a Ragu, a slow cooked meat sauce, but perhaps the most famous is from the city of Bologna in Emilia-Romagna, Ragu alla Bolognese.

Spaghetti alla Gricia

The key ingredient in Spaghetti alla Gricia is guanciale, cured pork jowl. Guanciale is also traditionally used in the classic Roman Pasta dishes, Bucatini all’Amatriciana and Spaghetti alla Carbonara.

Swordfish Sicilian Style

This is my favorite way to have Swordfish. The lemon, oil, garlic and white wine marinade is quick to make and very tasty.

Ossobuco is a classic Milanese dish that pairs perfectly with another specialty from the Lombardy region, saffron infused Risotto alla Milanese. The name Ossobuco literally translates to “bone with a hole” which is a reference to the marrow filled hole in...

Recipe attribution and credit can be a tricky thing. The internet is like the wild west when it comes to this, ripe with ripped off recipes and people stealing other people’s ideas without giving credit. Several times I have stumbled across my own recipes copied word...
