HONORABLE MENTION IN THE ERIC HOFFER BOOK AWARD
Big Mamma's Italian-American Cookbook, Lee Casazza, Lee Casazza Cooking - When Italian immigrants come to America, they bring with them their treasured family recipes from the regions of Italy where they have lived. As these immigrants become immersed into American culture, their cuisine begins to change naturally to reflect the inspiration of their new way of life. Lee Casazza has compiled a cookbook lovingly filled with mouthwatering family recipes that have been passed down through the generations. The book includes family photos and untouched recipe photographs. Notable dishes include Roasted Pork Tenderloin Wrapped in Bacon, Big Mammas Sunday Braciole with Gravy, and Mussels with Tomatoes, Fennel & Wine. Helpful hints shorten the time on some dishes, and there are recipes that can be made in thirty minutes or less.
