The family that eats together stays together That's what Lisa Caponigri believes, and she created "Whatever Happened to Sunday Dinner?" to give real families recipes they can easily cook and enjoy together. Caponigri has devised 52 delicious Italian menus--one for each Sunday of the year--that feature all the favorites, including classics like crostini, lasagne, polenta, stuffed peppers, veal piccata, risotto alla Milanese, and ricotta pie. There are also many surprises like Woodman's pasta and Italian french fries--and traditional, treasured dishes from her own family's kitchen, such as Nana's Strufoli and Grandma Caponigri's Ragu Sauce.Beautifully photographed by Guy Ambrosino, "Whatever Happened to Sunday Dinner?" showcases food styling by former "Gourmet" magazine editor Kate Winslow.
