Summary: Introduction Nonna Like every true Italian nonna, my grandmother, Mary Lazzarino, epitomizes all the love that goes into Italian-American cooking. In this chapter you will find those special recipes that my nonna cooked for me, and that still evoke warm memories of my childhood, including Potato Frittata, Prosciutto Bread, Bracciole, Eggs in Purgatory, and Parmesan Mashed Potatoes. Mulberry Street Mulberry Street in lower Manhattan, with its many restaurants, cafes, and groceries, represents Little Italy for millions of people across America. You can create the spirit of Little Italy in your own kitchen with such classic dishes as Mozzarella in Carrozza, Caponata, Pasta e Fagiole, Pizza Margherita, and Rigatoni alla Vodka. Sheepshead Bay Cooking seafood always takes me back to Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, the inlet between Coney Island and the Rockaways with its mile-long waterfront strip where the smells of the sea mingle with the delicious aromas of the restaurants. Sheepshead Bay has inspired recipes like Brochettes of Octopus and Squid, Crostini of Clams, Mussels, and Shrimp, Spaghetti with Crabs, and Swordfish and Shellfish Stew. Mimmo's Garden Vegetable gardens are a strong tradition in our community, and my friend Mimmo had one of the best in the old neighborhood. Mimmo's abundant crop resulted in many memorable recipes, including Grilled Vegetable Pizza, Pasta with Wild Greens and Ricotta, Sicilian Roasted Pepper Salad, Stuffed Escarole Leaves, and Vegetable Tart. La Caccia La caccia, the hunt, always meant brisk days in the country, the companionship of close friends and family, and the great meals and story-telling that accompanied these special times. Whether we were hunting mushrooms for the sauce or game for the main dish, these hearty dishes--Polenta with Wild Mushrooms, Pumpkin Gnocchi, Rigatoni with Mushroom Sauce, Wild Duck with Lentils--always tasted just right when we came in from the cold. La Festa The two biggest and most sacred holidays in our culture are, of course, Christmas and Easter. Special seafood dishes, such as Christmas Eve Fried Eels, Christmas Fish Stew, and Baccala with Potatoes and Olives, always signaled Christmastime, while Easter celebrations called for the traditional Roasted Suckling Lamb, Pizza Rustica, and Pizza di Grano (Grain Pie). Dolci Like most people I know, I have a sweet tooth. Luckily for me, the cuisine of Little Italy features many excellent desserts, from simple Almond Biscotti to rich Zabaglione. This chapter also includes fruit-based delicacies such as Sicilian Citrus Granita, Honey-Fried Canteloupe, and Peaches in Red Wine, as well as the incomparable Amaretto-Chocolate Cheesecake. Amici Friends are sacred to Italian-Americans. The recipes in this chapter are adapted from dishes my friends have cooked for me over the years, including Cousin Vinny's Linguine with Scallop Sauce, Tortellini alla Danny, Mamma Palumbo's Egg Croquettes, and Joey "Bats" Cannelloni.

Recensione: PBS viewers will recognize David Ruggerio from his series Little Italy with David Ruggerio, in which the gourmet chef and owner of several fine restaurants in New York returns to his roots in that city's famous Italian neighborhood. Little Italy Cookbook is a companion to the series, a compendium of the delectable traditional family recipes Ruggerio grew up with. Divided into chapters with names such as "Nonna" (grandmother), "Mulberry Street" (the heart of New York's Little Italy), and "Amici" (friends), Ruggerio's theme becomes clear: these recipes are culled from real people and real places, many of whom are immortalized in the evocative photographs that liberally punctuate the text. Polenta with a Ragu of Wild Mushrooms, Parmesan Mashed Potatoes, Duck with Lentils--these dishes range from the homey to the sublime, and every one will make you feel like you've just stepped out of your own kitchen and into Little Italy.
