Arlene Franco-Iaquinto Book Signing - December 7, 2014
Join us on Sunday, December 7th from 1pm - 3pm as Arlene signs copies of Momma's Christmas Cookbook.

More than a convenient collection of classic Italian recipes, Momma's Christmas Cookbook is a tribute to the traditions that keep families together! Especially for the cook who remembers what her mother or grandmother put on the table to celebrate the holidays, this cookbook contains all the recipes you want to prepare for your family at Christmas...or any day of the year!

The real-life "Momma," Lucia Franco (1911 - 1974) engaged all her senses her vision, her tastebuds, her listening and her delicate touch, never needing recipes to create the perfect meal (she never learned to read). Fortunately, we are able to share in the rich, family-centered traditions she left us. It is my purpose to share with you those dishes she served with such love and care, so that your holiday gatherings will always be special.
