A year ago, Mary never imagined that she would publish this family cookbook and talk about it with Rocco DiSpirito!! She co-hosted this Order Sons and Daughters of Italy in America Facebook show with one of Cugine in Cucina's favorite authors, Andrew Cotto! The full interview can be seen on Facebook or here on YouTube: OSDIA Interviews LIVE!: Rocco DiSpirito

In an Apostolic Letter, Pope Francis declared from December 8, 2020 to December 8, 2021 the Year of St. Joseph! Because of that, this March 19 is even more special! March 19 is known to many as St. Joseph’s Day. Many Italians celebrate it creating their own St. Joseph’s alter (or table) filled with food for family and friends to join their festivities. Don’t worry, you don’t need to do that if it’s your first time celebrating the Italian culture! This year, make Mamacita’s San Giuseppe Pasta from our cookbook Don’t Cut the Basil: Five Generations of Authentic Italian Recipes. FUN FACT: March 19 is Nonna Josie’s birthday!
