When you visit an Italian household, whether you are a new friend or a close family member, conversation will at some point take place around the table, where good food will be served to you, regardless if you are hungry or not. Today I welcome a new friend to my virtual kitchen table. Tony Morinelli, a fellow South Philadelphia native who shares the same passion as I to preserve the rich Italian American culture, reached out to me last week, asking if I would like to share web links with him. His web site, The Food Table, is a wonderful collection of Italian American recipes, history, and personal memories. From classic recipes such as Panzetta (stuffed breast of veal), Osso Bucco and Caponata, to his memories of growing up as a fourth generation Italian in the mid 1950′s, Tony’s website is very inspiring and educational.
