The author/actor's stories are heartwarming and transport you back to your childhood. Thankfully he includes all the recipes he speaks of,because you will salivate when he tells you of these special family dishes that most of us of sicilian ancestry remember so well. These days are a long ago golden memory.
A must read!
I would recommend this to anyone who lived in Brooklyn or Queens in the 50s and 60s and remember occasions like the Feast of the Seven Fishes on Christmas Eve and the Sunday supper table at our Italian American friends.
It is much more than that! You will be reading family history with food! I haven't tried any of the recipes yet but will be soon. They sound very yummy! This is a very interesting concept - family memories with matching recipes so to speak.
