Pizza & Pasta Festival
In my generation the family kitchen inspired many chefs; in my kitchen Mom cooked during the week our family meal and on weekends Dad joined the cooking of very special Sunday dinners. On Saturday the Sugo de Pomadoro was prepared this formed the basis for many of my favorite recipes. I will demonstrate my favorite Pizza and Pasta dishes along with informative information on choosing quality ingredients and understanding the procedure.
