In Rossella's family, it was never just about cooking, it was about being with the people in your family, and in your community. Cooking was somewhere you could share ideas and enjoy your love of food together. Rossella spent most of her childhood beside her maternal Grandmother, Roman where she learned about her family through the recipes that were passed on to her. Rossella is a first generation Italian-American, who was born in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. Her parents were from the tiny fishing village Mola di Bari. This is a fun site to spend time on. That is what cooking should be all about, the bringing together of family and friends, over good food, conversation, and laughter.
