When you’re raised in a big Italian-American family, you quickly come to realize that family is everything – at least that’s what Chef Tony believes. And if you’ve seen him on TV, whether demonstrating a gadget that’ll make your life easier or sharing his kitchen hints and tips, you know it’s hard not to be drawn into his warm and inviting personality.
That’s why it’s not hard to believe that, if Chef Tony could, he would invite everyone who watches him on TV into his home for dinner. After all, that what family does. Since that’s not possible, Chef Tony’s done the next best thing – he’s assembled a cookbook filled with many of the classic recipes he grew up with, along with the recipes that he uses daily in his busy life.
That means, it includes some of his best Italian-American dishes (just wait until you try his Old World Pasta Bolognese!), as well as everyday favorites like a Mashed Potato “Stuffed” Meatloaf that’ll have your whole family cheering. Chef Tony created this cookbook to inspire the everyday cook, and to show everyone that it’s easy to get a good meal on the table using off-the-shelf ingredients. As someone with a busy schedule, Chef Tony understands the importance of being able to put dinner on the table every night of the week.
That’s why all of the recipes in this cookbook use everyday ingredients and have simple instructions. Not only are these recipes easy to make, but every one of them has been taste-tested by his family, his friends, and Chef Tony himself. (As Chef Tony would say, “Taste the love – Love the taste!) With more than 130 recipes, lots of full-page color photos, and areas for readers to add their own recipe notes, this cookbook is bound to be a favorite.
