Not sure who all these people are.
I grew up in an Italian family from New York. My grandfather Carlos claimed to be the King of Italy’s personal tailor. I’m still checking on whether or not
there was a king of Italy in the late 1800’s as my grandfather claimed.
All the uncles in my family cooked. Holidays and special occasions found them in the kitchen
making their own specialty. My aunts were ushered out to the dining room table to discuss “girl things”—which usually meant men things.
Uncle Eddy’s specialty was
duck and sausage lasagna; colorful, creative, aromatic, pungent, gamey, woodsy, and memorable--all adjectives that applied to Uncle Eddy, too. He made it every Christmas.
Uncle Eddy was
my mother's favorite, and my hope is he'll become yours, too. Join the Uncles and Grandpa Carlos this Christmas souse your family can come together in the same special way ours does every year.
Buon Natale and Salute' to Youse and Yours!
