Additional Details

Description: This is Castagnola's, a restaurant which set the pace for today's Italian cuisine, in the Hawaiian Islands or anywhere else. Consistently voted one of Hawaii's top ten dining experiences, Castagnola's, was located in the Manoa Marketplace and owned and operated by "Cass" and Ruth Castagnola. Since the 1970s, these New Jersey transplants prepared their unique brand of cucina to rave reviews and turnaway crowds. Frank Sinatra even ordered Castagnola's meatballs and sauce sent to his home in Palm Springs! 

What was their secret? Simply put, it's using the best possible ingredients, even if it means importing them from halfway around the world. Pomodori tomatoes from San Marzano, Italy. Extra virgin olive oil from the orchards of Tuscany. Parmesan and prosciutto from Parma. Buffalo mozzarella from Naples. 

After countless requests, the Castagnolas introduced this cookbook, Cooking Italian in Hawaii. In these pages you'll find nearly 100 innovative recipes and dozens of suggestions for preparation and, most important, for shopping. Turn the pages and discover how Castagnola's cuisine can translate into memorable Italian cooking right in your own kitchen. 

Buon Appetito!
