Nostalgic and Nice, Traditional Italian Recipes,
This review is from: Don't Fill Up on the Antipasto: Tony Danza's Father-Son Cookbook (Hardcover)
This is not your typical cookbook. Tony Danza and his son, Marc, put together a collection of recipes that they grew up with from their Sicilian Italian family. Don't Fill Up on the Antipasto is more than a cookbook, however; it is a collection of stories about their family and includes black and white photographs.
The upshot is a homey and sweet book that includes delicious and traditional Italian recipes.
Danza writes how the food he grew up with was considered peasant food--vegetables, carbs and small amounts of meat and how healthy that diet really is. He notes how much of that has changed...and so have the expanding waistlines in his family. Lesson--save the heavier meaty dishes for special occasions!
