Cooking is my passion.
Maybe because the happiest memories in my life include being in the kitchen, cooking with my mother, grandmother and siblings. Growing up in a large Italian-American family is something I would not change for anything. Every celebration, every birthday, every milestone, every holiday was celebrated with and centered around food! Even our weeknight dinner was like attending a grand celebration, after all there were an intimate 10 of us for dinner every night. My 6 siblings, parents, grandmother and I, all lived under one roof. We ate dinner together every night. Sometimes I don’t know how my mother did it, day after day, meal after meal always keeping it interesting and of course, delicious!
We had the house, as humble as it was, that always entertained and was known for an incredible spread of delicious home-cooked food and desserts one end of the table to the other. No one left my mother’s house hungry or empty-handed. So, it seemed only natural that more than one of us siblings followed in the footsteps of my mother and grandmother and embraced the culinary world with such enthusiasm. What follows here is a life time of cooking knowledge, first as a home cook, and then more seriously as a professional, bringing with us over 3 generations of recipes and traditions. We are so happy you joined us and we promise to do everything we can to make your visit an enjoyable one. From our family to yours, con amore, Della Cucina
