With the broader community participation came the idea of using this project to support some local community needs. To that end, our cookbook Treasured Italian Recipes was donated to the East Rochester Rotary Club as a fund raiser for non - profit projects sponsored by our club. In its 11th. printing, with over 22,000 books sold to date it is very popular with people who like to cook Italian. The East Rochester Rotary Club, as its major fund raiser, has published this Italian Recipe cookbook. Requests come from any of our United States and several foreign countries.From the Author:
You will recall the old saying 'you won't miss it until you haven't got it' ( or you can't find it ). Well I never realized how much I depended upon my mother to refresh my memory when preparing those special old world Italian recipes until she could no longer be there for me.
Like most of us who have contributed to this work of love, I learned to cook at my mothers elbow. She did not own a cookbook and she never used a measuring cup. My mother ( Miele E. Calabrese ) relied on feel, appearance of taste - often adding a handful of this or a pinch of that to make things just right. As it has always had been, old recipes, cooking and seasoning methods, the art of blending ingredients, etc. were committed to memory and passed from mother to daughter.
Last Christmas, as I struggled to recall one of the traditional Christmas Eve recipes I had committed to memory, it suddenly occurred to me that , with the passing away of our mothers, we were losing one of the most valuable treasures they had bequeath to us ....... their kitchen skills and recipes.
In January, I decided we must do something to preserve our culinary heritage. I began asking my family and friends to write down their favorite Italian recipes, to be included in a simple cookbook for their own personal use. The response was great and, needless to say, the idea snowballed until we had responses from almost every Italian family in East Rochester; representing most of the Italian provinces from whence they came.
Although each of the recipes is this cookbook has its origin in Italy, many of the recipes has been modified to take advantage of ingredients or processes not available to our forebears. Also, some of our Italian- American contributors created new recipes based in the Italian tradition - another testimony to the versatility of the Italians.
