Not sure who all these people are.
I grew up in an Italian family from New York. My Grandfather Carlo claimed to be the King of
Italy’s personal tailor. I’m still checking on whether there was a king of Italy in 1900.
Uncles in my family cooked. Holidays and special occasions found them in the kitchen making their own specialty. The Aunts were ushered out to the dining room table to discuss
“girl things”—which usually meant Uncle things.
Uncle Eddy’s specialty
was Duck and Sausage Lasagna: colorful, creative, aromatic, pungent, gamey, woodsy, and memorable--all adjectives that described my Uncle Eddy, too. He made it every Christmas.
Uncle Eddy was my mother's favorite, and my hope is he'll be yours, too. Join the Uncles and Grandpa Carlo this
Christmas and your family will come together in the same special way as ours does every year.
Buon Natale and Salute' to Youse and Yours!
