  1. Man, my grandmomma was from Sicily and she made the most delicious meatballs I ever tasted, like you wouldnt believe. Sadly, she died last year and she didnt leave a single recipe for us so I’ve been trying to figure it out by myself… slowly working my through the meatball recipes here, I still cant figure out what her secret ingredient was though!!!

  2. I enjoyed immensely your culinary classes in nyc and my children since then have also been enjoying chef school for kids thanks to the wonderful inspiration your courses gave us all!
