One thing that's for certain is my love of food. Most people thank their families for passing down the delicious traditions and recipes. And trust me, I thank my family forever for everything I was exposed to and taught. But I would be a fool if I didn't thank South Philly. I may live in the 'burbs now, but I'm only a few minutes drive away. South Philly is the greatest place in the world to me. I've been to NYC, I've been to LA. Nothing compares. My heart is there and always will be. More importantly, my stomach is there.
One of my weaknesses is sausage and peppers. I dont think you can drive through South Philly without that smell coming from somewhere. White style, red style, on a roll, over polenta......doesn't matter. I love to eat it and love to cook it. I even got in the top 3 on MasterChef with my sausage and peppers over polenta!! I mean, if Gordon Ramsay loves your food, you got it. Am I right or am I right? (toots own horn)
