The LoFrisco Family Cookbook: How Josie Brought Sicily to Brooklyn with Anthony F. LoFrisco.
The LoFrisco Family Cookbook is part cookbook, part memoir. The author, son of Sicilian immigrants in the early 1900s, shares not only his mother's time-tested simple and delicious recipes, but he brings them to life by embracing them with endearing family stories of growing up in an Italian-American neighborhood in Brooklyn.
LoFrisco intersperses recipes for such Italian classics as lasagna and chicken cacciatore with reminiscences of his childhood days, where food was always the center of attention and mama ruled the kitchen.
A graduate of Fordham College and Fordham Law School, LoFrisco was a partner and litigator in several high energy law firms in Manhattan. His way of relaxing at home was to walk into the kitchen, put on an apron, turn on the oven and go to work. LoFrisco lives, and cooks, in Wilton, Connecticut.
Books will be available for sale and signing at the event.
