“This is what my mother in-law taught me. You take a few tablespoons of tomato sauce, and put in here (with the chopped meat).”

We’re not gonna waste our time waiting on lines, getting all “Bent Out of Shaped,” and stressed out like those people who shop on Thanksgiving and Black Friday. No, our day is going to be a whole lot better and more fulfilling than fight traffic and crowds. We go down early in the morning to our local Italian pork Store Faicco’s on Bleecker Street to get all our stuff for our tasty Sunday Sauce.  I pick up all the meats I need to make the my Sunday Sauce alla Clemenza. I need Italian Sweet Sausages, Braciole, San Marzano Tomatoes, and Maccheroni.

They are keeping up a family tradition that they’ve been partaking in since they were young boys in the early 1960’s America. Daniel even wrote a couple books that are themed around this most important subject of SUNDAY SAUCE  Italian Gravy. Daniel likes to put Pork Spare Ribs in his sauce, which he says, “Oh my God, the Ribs in the Sauce? When you cook Spare Ribs in the Gravy, you just can’t believe how tasty they are. The are so succulent and juice. They taste so Dam Good. Even better than BBQ Ribs, which I love as well. But the Ribs in the Sunday Sauce taste even better, believe it or not? I kid you not.”  Our Thanksgiving Turkey “We had this yesterday. It came out Dam Good.” Like all Good Italians, we started our Thanksgiving Dinner with a little Antipasto Misti of Salami, Provolone, Olives, Celery and Roast Peppers. The we sat down for a portion of Rigatoni Bolognese, made with my Famous ragu Bolognese Sauce. The we take an hour break, before sitting down for the Turkey with all the trimmings. Our Turkey came out so good. We take another hour break before sitting down for all our desserts, which included; Pumpkin Pie, Coconut Custard Pie, Pecan Pie, “Wow, that’s a lot of Pies?” We have Espresso, Cannolis, and Italian Cookies, and a couple shots of Amaro to finish it all off, and another Thanksgiving has come and gone. Yes, many families will go shopping on Black Friday, and Cyber Monday, but not us. We’ll be eating Sunday Sauce on Friday and having Meatball Parmigiano Sandwiches on Meatball Parm Mondays. Now that’s Italian! What would you rather do? Fight Traffic and crowds and lines at the shopping malls, or eat Sunday Sauce and Meatballs? I know what I’ll be doing. Me, my family and friends. We Mangia Bene Tutto! Basta!

Segreto Italiano Secret Recipes

Verified Amazon Review
If you’re just beginning to learn Italian cooking – or you’re advanced…..you’ll find at least ONE recipe in this book you’ll have to try. But more likely, you’ll find several. What I love about this selection of recipes is that they include strictly Italian; Sicilian; and Italian-American dishes. The author recognizes Italian-American as a cuisine unto its own. Falling into all three categories myself, I have a large collection of Italian and Sicilian cook books, but none specifically for Italian-American. I think this is about as close as I’ll get. Dishes from my childhood (along with some charming anecdotes from the author) are in here and my mouth waters just thinking about which one I’ll make first.
 

 

The recipes are rather simple just like *real* Italian food. I remember the time I asked Zia Elena for her spaghetti sauce and meatball recipes. To me, she was the Queen of authentic and delicious Sicilian/Neopolitan cookery (she married one of those northern Italians, so learned to cook for him. I had to ask her on the sly as no one would admit to her superior culinary skills in front of their own mothers!) Her list of ingredients was short and of course, delicious. Most Italian recipes are like that —- not complicated, but delicious.


 

 

I give this book two paws up! For the price, it’s such a deal, it should be in any cook book collection which focuses on the three types of Italian food. And lest the reader say, “But I thought Sicilians *were* Italians…” You can read up on this on the internet and see that Sicily had hosted numerous types of colonies for hundreds of years by everyone from Greeks, Arabs, Byzantines, even Scandinavians!. It only became part of Italy in 1860. Then in 1946 it became an autonomous region. Why does this matter? Sicilian cooking has many influences and so differs, although at times in subtle ways and sometimes in a complete composition expression to the more northern Italian food and customs. Due to Sicily’s proximity to Greece, a dear Greek man once told me (as I choked on the sweetness of the baklava he had just given me), that Sicilians were “just Greeks” who wanted to be Italians. May be a grain of truth in that.!


 

 

If you love this outrageously ethnic food, then I highly recommend this. It’s the kind of book I wish Zia Elena would have written and left to me! 


 
 
Thanks, Daniel
