     Recipes and Ramblings -the Cookbooks -Publication scheduled for Spring 2016!


                         Finalmente! I am very proud to announce that I have partnered with Pelican Publishing Company for the publication of the first of my two regional Italian cookbooks, In the Footsteps of Nonna: Recipes and Ramblings in Southern Italy and Sicily. There are over 150 authentic and original recipes that are easy to prepare abd delicious. This cookbook also contains plenty of wonderful short stories about my family's Italian food traditions, my many travels to Italy, and my colorful friends who live there. It provides wonderful and entertaining insight to Italian food and culture. I will keep you updated as we near the publication date. 


        Many thanks to my amazing wife, family, friends and the members of for all of your support over the past few years! Many thanks also to Nina Kooij, editor in chief, at Pelican Publishing Company, and the entire team at Pelican for sharing my vision and for all of your hard work and efforts over the next few months! Finally, with your continued support, I am hopeful and confident that my second cookbook, Recipes and Ramblings in Northern Italy, Istria and Dalmatia will be available in 2017 or sooner!


Grazie mille!
