I was born in New Jersey to first generation Italian parents. Both sets of my grandparents were born in Italy and emigrated to the United States. They brought with them a love of the Italian culture and Italian traditional cooking. My parents instilled those same values in their children and we all enjoy cooking and learning about our heritage. I learned many of my cooking skills from my parents and grandparents, but I also studied Italian cooking and made many of the recipes for my children as they were growing up. They also enjoy cooking for their families.
