My family, the Valastros, makes its living by baking and selling just about anything you can think of at Carlos Bake Shop. Its what were known for. But theres another side to our family and our relationship to food, and its just as personal, maybe even more personal, than what we do at the bakery. Im talking about the recipes and dishes, meals and traditions that nourish our bodies and souls when we get home. Just like any other family, we enjoy chilling out and spending time together, and theres no way wed rather do that than around a table, a place that keeps us grounded and connected to each other as well as to the relatives who came before us. As proud as I am of our professional success, Im just as proud that weve been able to continue making time for our family and extended familyand were talking a lot of people to meet several times a week and eat together.
And now Im honored to share with you my familys favorite recipes and to tell you the stories of what makes them so near and dear to our hearts. I hope they might become favorites for your family as well, that they help you create memories to last a lifetime, the same way theyve done for us Valastros.
-- Buon Appetito, Buddy Valastro
