Cooking the Italian Way

I love to cook Italian cuisine. My husband and I are planning to take cooking lessons at De Lucas Cooking School. The recipes I make from the book turn out very good. I still would like to improve my culinary skills, as well as wine pairings.
When my husband and I arrived at our local Italian grocery store after hours. De Lucas Specialty Food Store and Restaurant. Tony the proprietor was good enough to let us in to do our shopping. As we shopped, he told us of him self and his brothers. Tony made us feel welcomed, he never once complained about keeping the store open late. Tony happily helped us find all the ingredients we needed to make the incredible dishes we were going home to prepare...he also gave us the apron I'm wearing. I wear it every time I cook Italian cuisine.


  1. I love Italian food too and shopping in Italian food stores. I usually go to one in Milford, PA called Fretta's. My boyfriend's mother was born in Italy and her cooking is to die for.

    Love the apron. The cooking school sounds like a lot of fun. In fact, I think I'll check around and see if there are any classes available where we live.

  2. I can hardly wait to shop at the "real" thing...Italy, my heart lies with Tuscany. Classes start in Feb. I'll let you know how they are going....Love your blog!
