Additional Details

Description: Rocco DiSpirito's second restaurant, Rocco's 22nd Street, gained national fame with the reality show The Restaurant. Rocco designed the menu with the help of his mother, Nicolina, and the rest of their family, using recipes passed on for generations. In Rocco's Italian-American, he gives readers these treasured recipes in versions specially adapted for today's home kitchen. 

Nicolina (better known as "Mama") lent many of her own tried and true recipes to the restaurant, and now Rocco shows you everything you need to know to create these delicious dishes. Rocco and Mama also share family photos, stories, and family history. Rocco is an Italian-American chef who appreciates and loves to share the home cooking that first inspired him to cook. 

All the recipes in Rocco's Italian-American use fewer than ten ingredients -- many fewer than five! And though they are easy to make, each one is a treat the whole family will love, even kids and picky eaters. 

The recipes include Rocco's favorite childhood foods, and the very first dishes Nicolina taught him to cook. Inside are: 

  • Shrimp Fritti 
  • Clams Oreganata 
  • Penne with White Pesto 
  • Pappardelle Bolognese 
  • Eggplant Parmigiana 
  • Baby Lamb Chop Scottaditoo 
  • Classic Tiramimi 

America loves Italian-American food. Here is a cookbook from a great chef and his beloved mother that every home will use again and again.
