AboutAn Italian Cookbook of Family Treasures As the title states this is more than a cookbook but a book of Family Treasures. The Authors opens up about his Italian family and the history of them making their way from Calabria and Sicily Italy to America and settling in upstate New York. In a different and unique way Schuler has tied his family roots to recipes dating back 100 years. These include such family favorites as the original family sauce recipe and home made pasta to family favorites prepared daily in their home. Not only are his grandparent's part of the story but, aunts, uncles and close family friends are tied to recipes and interesting stories that make each recipe a true treasure. The theme is Italian cooking but other popular entrées have found their way to the dinner table, desert tray, and holiday gift baskets and yes the family bar. Drinks found to be family favorites and each having a special occasion and special person associated with the drink is described in the story and recipe sections.
