The long anticipated culinary secrets of Mamma Agata are revealed!
We invite you to stroll along side as she unveils the culinary secrets and recipes
that have pleased the pallets of some of the world's most noted celebrities through
the years - from Humphrey Bogart, Jacqueline Kennedy, Elizabeth Taylor in years
past to Woody Harrelson and Pierce Brosnan in more recent years.
Our goal is to personally guide you through each recipe so that you have the necessary
skills to recreate meals filled with the same delectable aromas, fresh ingredients
and intense flavors that grace the kitchen of Mamma Agata or "Baby Agata"
as Humphrey Bogart so lovingly named her.
We will teach you how to recreate many wonderful dishes such as our famously delicious
Eggplant Parmigiana that we promise will melt in your mouth and excite your palate
with its three distinctive Italian cheeses and fresh vegetables.
We will share with you one of the most treasured of all Mamma Agata's recipes, the
famous Lemon Cake, with its simplicity and perfect balance that has surprised so
many people since she began making it at the young age of 13 years and her frst
biggest fan was Humphrey Bogart!
But also... dishes as Pizza, fried pizza, Gnocchi, meatballs, pasta with zucchini,
with peppers and sausage, traditional fish dishes, meat, chicken with lemon....and
more... - all of the recipes you have always wanted to learn to cook from generations
past but sadly they have since long been forgotten and no longer accessible to your
Unbridled passion and untold sacrifices.
Genuine love and inexplicable joy.
Elegant simplicity, indeed.
