As far back as I can remember, my family’s kitchen was filled with mouthwatering aromas of Sicilian Italian cooking, and on Sunday mornings I would help my father prepare traditional family dishes. Our cabinets were lined with large jars of olives, capers, rich olive oil, Italian cookies and cannolis from Central Grocery in New Orleans. This is when my love for food and wine was born but for many years it just simmered under the surface.
And, now, I am thrilled to have been invited to cook with Chef Tony Galzin at POP! We both share similar Italian backgrounds and are so excited to share our love and passion for the Italian grill!
Spiedini and Arrosticini
The Italian word “spiedini” or “arrosticini” refers to meat cooked on a skewer. The regional dish in Abruzzo, Italy, spiedini is, lamb, chicken, shrimp or beef on a skewer.
Tony and I will be firing up the grill for an evening of Italian regional specialties, all cooked over an open flame.
