Whats Cookin Italian Style Cuisine Cookbook

Thursday, February 16, 2017

During the last 8 years of blogging I am proud to offer you a chance to purchase my family's recipe cookbook.

The recipes are all inspired by the late: Mom, Margaret Fanelli Colenzo, Dad, Carmen Colenzo and Grandma Victoria Ferraro Colenzo all who inspired me to cook and this book.

They all taught me a little of everything I know about authentic cooking from the Regions their parents came from. Bari and Rome Italy.

If It's From Utica it's the BEST "Little Italy"

When they resided in Utica, New York, the years of living in what was referred to as "little Italy" became one of the best areas to eat Italian food.

The Utica area is also noted for fabulous bakeries that make tomato pie, pastaciotti, fried dough, lemon ice, Italian pastries and cookies that are the area's specialties.

There is a special section just for the Utica ,New York Specialties that mom made and handed down.

Traditions We Grew UP ON

The meaning of true Italian cooking and traditions, great food and great conversation.

Their memory lives on everyday in our kitchens. It brings me great joy to dedicate this book in memory of all of them for the joy their foods have brought to all of us in our families.

The traditions will live on with my children, their future children and all my loving family members.
