Italian Cookbooks: Bruculinu, America: Remembrances of Sicilian-American Brooklyn, Told in Stories and Recipes
(Pasta Recipes Made Easy)
This Brooklyn-inspired read is one very American Italian cookbook by a known actor who appeared in the film Ghost.
Best thought of as a 'memoir with recipes, Vincent Schiavelli's book is a charming and heart-warming read in which he tells stories of New York life, often as not featuring his grandfather (nonno
) Papa Andrea, a Sicilian master chef.
On the food front, Bruculina spans hearty everyday dishes such as pasta with chickpeas
, baked macaroni and seasonal feeds like log-shaped Christmas cookies.
If you are a fan of Sicily, a true-blue Brooklynite, or like your recipes wrapped in a warmly padded layer of Italian American life and thoughts, this evocative read is definitely one you should consider.
