Buona Festa della Mamma! This year on Mother’s Day we reflect on the many things our grandmothers and mothers shared with us through the generations. Mother’s Day, like many other recognized days throughout the year, means getting together with family around the table with large quantities of food and wine. Our mothers have been our biggest influences and teachers in the kitchen, passing down our many Italian family traditions. They dedicated Sundays to making homemade meatballs and sauce in anticipation of a large pasta dinner with family. Our mothers wanted us to participate in this tradition since we were young - we stirred the sauce, taste tested, and set the table. Our traditions and memories are gifts of gratitude from our grandmothers and mothers. It’s what keeps us cooking, and what we share with our children! We are honored to share our traditions, recipes, and food with others. Celebrate this Mother's Day by gifting our cookbook Don't Cut the Basil: Five Generations of Authentic Italian Recipes to someone you love! In fact, we are offering FREE SHIPPING for the entire month of May! Use promo code May2021 to take advantage of the offer!

Festa della Liberazione is Italy’s Liberation Day! This is a national holiday that is recognized every April 25 to celebrate the end of the Nazi Germany occupation in Italy during World War II. Mary’s great uncle served for the Italian military in WWII and earned a Medal of Valor. She was able to see the medal and his original honorable discharge paperwork when she visited family in Campania (2019). To celebrate the Festa della Liberazione, she made her famous wedding cookies in the Italian flag colors. They are seen below just prior to decorating with powdered sugar.
