I just wanted to tell you how much I LOVE the new cookbook! It is so well written, and the recipes are spot on and easy to follow. The home proportions are perfect too.

Tonight I made the meat sauce, meatballs, garlic bread, blue cheese dressing, ranch dressing and salad (without the egg, salami, and bean salad – but delicious nonetheless)! Later this week, I will try the pizza dough.

I appreciate so much you sharing these amazing recipes. I have Petaluma’s Della Fattoria’s cookbook, Tony’s Pizza’s cookbook from San Francisco, and all Thomas Keller’s books. It’s fun to recreate dishes at home but the goodwill of having the cookbook also sends me back to your restaurants again and again: even us cooks need a night out.

Thanks for sending your photo and note to us, Sue! We look forward to more stories and photos in the future. To share your favorite recipe, email us at
