This cookbook is a tribute to and a sharing of my family’s Italian heritage. My grandparents came to America in the 1800s from a small village above Naples. They brought their customs, traditions and experiences to America. My mother, Celia, was the youngest of nine children in the family. These recipes came with them over a century ago. We grew much of our own food, baked bread, and raised our own chickens. We were poor by many standards, but we never knew it. We had it all. With today’s hectic lifestyle and pressures, this cookbook will help your family occasionally escape the rat-race and go back to a simpler time. As a family you can enjoy cooking one of our original recipes together. The recipes in this cookbook are clear and precise with step-by-step preparations. They include insights of the joy my family experienced. This cookbook is truly a unique Italian family experience.

A Brooklyn favorite with a national following, Franny's is known for its simple, seasonal Southern Italian dishes and exceptional pizza. Alice Waters says it best in her foreword: "This book captures the beating heart of what makes Franny's so beautiful: its simplicity, its ability to make the ordinary surprising, and--above all--its celebration of honest everyday cooking." Franny's is filled with recipes that are destined to become classics. Chef Andrew Feinberg plays with traditional Southern Italian cuisine and makes the dishes lighter and brighter. New favorites--including Roasted Romano Beans with Calabrese Olives, Clam Pizza, and Linguine with Meyer Lemon--sit side by side with perfect executions of timeless Italican dishes like Marinated Artichokes, Baked Sausage and Polenta, and Bucatini alla Puttanesca. Feinberg breaks down his techniques for the home cook, while offering cutting-edge food combinations, spinning the typical ingredients in unexpected directions. Teeming with irresistible full-color photographs, Franny's shows how simple preparations of quality ingredients can create food that is much more than the sum of its parts.
