Hazan Family Favorites

by Giuliano Hazan


Giuliano Hazan grew up eating brilliant food cooked by his mother Marcella, but the recipes in this book hold some surprises. Included is his mother’s ‘cult’ tomato sauce recipe made with just simmered tomatoes, a halved onion, butter and salt, but there are also dishes from his maternal and paternal grandparents, reflecting their various Sephardic Jewish, Turkish, Syrian and Egyptian backgrounds – as well as dishes Giuliano’s two daughters love to cook. A deliciously personal, multi-generational recipe collection.

from the publisher

As a child in America, Giuliano Hazan’s mother, Marcella, packed him meatballs with potatoes and peas, veal stew with mushrooms, and other homemade dishes for lunch―dishes that in no way resembled the peanut butter sandwiches his classmates enjoyed. And so began his appreciation of great food. Hazan Family Favorites celebrates delicious recipes from the Hazan family, prepared just as Giuliano prepares them for his own family today. Here are 85 recipes for every course in the Italian meal, including Appetizers, Soups, Pastas and Rice, Meats and Seafood, and Sides and Desserts. With recipes from Swiss Chard Tortelloni to Strawberry Gelato to everything in between, Hazan Family Favorites offers an intimate look at this iconic family and their most beloved recipes.
