"The chef that grew up with the grandma who cooks tends to always beat the chef that went to the culinary institute. It's in the blood." ~ Gary Vaynerchuk
My husband, Bruce, grew up in the Utica area of New York State. There, Sunday dinners were made by is Italian grandmother. Recently, Bruce has enjoyed a return to his roots - he is cooking up wonderful Italian dishes every Sunday afternoon - and I'm not complaining! While I was out at a craft fair on a recent Sunday, he began snapping pictures as he prepared a dinner of Roasted Red Peppers, Spinach Bread, and Shrimp Casino. All of his recipes came from the book Joey's Italian. If you click on any of the recipes above, it will take you to an excerpt from the book - scroll down to see each of the three recipes. I came home to wonderful aromas, and snapped a few photos of my own. Sadly - I didn't get any great shots of the cooked shrimp - what I can tell you is that they were wonderful! So - here is a guest appearance by my favorite chef!
And - he cleaned up when he was done! Molto delizioso, Chef Altieri - Molto delizioso!
