I have quite a few cookbooks on my shelves. Everything from the old standbys to a few from famous chefs and celebrities. My absolute favorite, by far, is the last one I received as a gift. My daughter has a few friends that work in NYC at Marc Forgione. She knows I love his food and for Father’s Day two years ago took me there for dinner. I had a wonderful, delicious appetizer that was so good, I wanted the recipe. While we were there Chef Forgione came to the table, mostly because he knew Mallorie, but also because he routinely visits his guests during their meal. I chatted with him for about 10 minutes and was very impressed by how down to earth he is.
Well, this past Father’s Day, I got an autographed copy of his latest cookbook! At first I was just thrilled to find that the recipe I wanted so badly was included in those pages. But, after sitting down with it and reading the first 30 pages, or so, I was inspired! Iron Chef Forgione tells the story of how he became a chef, almost lost his restaurant and how everything turned around for him.
You must get a copy of his book for your kitchen. In it, Chef Marc explains step-by-step how to prepare all his dishes. He even had them tested by his Mom! Get yours today! “Cook your food!” (aff)
