Description: Rao's Recipes from the Neighborhood is the long-awaited new collection by Frank Pellegrino, returning to what he knows best: authentic Italian food. This book is a tribute to the East Harlem Italian neighborhood that Pellegrino grew up in and that has housed Rao's for more than a century, as well as to the friends and family who helped make the restaurant what it is today -- New York City's toughest reservation. 

Richly illustrated with full-color photography as well as vintage photographs and studded with essays on the great Italian heritage of home-style cooking, this book is an inspired source of ideas that will appeal to a wide variety of home cooks. With a full range of dishes from antipasti to desserts, Rao's Recipes from the Neighborhood includes the kind of recipes you beg relatives to write down, such as: Rose Caiazzo's lasagne, Josie Salvamini's chicken cacciatore in the oven, Frankie's meatballs, Rose Milano's spaghetti frittata, Ida Pellegrino's stuffed calamari, and Maria Pugia's biscotti. 

You will turn to this cookbook again and again -- to get ideas for a quick midweek pasta dinner with the family, for chicken dishes to feed a crowd, for holiday baking recipes that are simple to make and satisfying to share. Coveted family recipes and shared memories make this classic cookbook a love story to generations past and a kitchen favorite for new generations to come.
