They would bring Italian sausages in an ice chest bc it was 60 yrs ago. Kids galore so the gravy pot was huge !! So…mom is 91 now & I needed some more tips so I can make the gravy. I learned a lot today , so THANK YOU !!

    Love it all! Especially the Sunday Gravy with braciole! Brings back memories of my Grandma and Aunt’s house in the Bronx when I was a kid.

    Welcome back, Gianni! Please do more cooking episodes as well as some more live streaming. I’ll be watching for you. BTW, you can’t tell from my YouTube handle, but I’m Italiano!

    For years I make this exactly even pine nuts and raisins in pork bracciole Great recipe. Funny my sauce is a variation of my moms who got it in 1960 from a San Francisco nonna. Its actually not that much work lol. I also do a variation with neck bones that I bake with tomato paste

    Every Italian family has a different twist but a lot of similarities. My grandmother doesn’t fry anything but cooks the meat concentrated in the sauce for 3 hours. The meat comes very soft. Same ingredients packed with flavor. My other side is Sicilian but I prefer the Neapolitan way. Great work thanks for the videos.

    great gravy , when I make mine I always grate fresh pecorino into the gravy while its cooking and I add a nice beef and pork bone for a little extra bang & when I have a little extra time make homemade noodles .

    Bravo Gianni! When I heard you say Sunday gravy, I knew you must have been originally from New Jersey or New York. But you also called it sugo, which is what my family calls it. My Calabrese nonna made her Sunday sugo with braciole, meatballs and sausage too. Oh the memories! 🇮🇹
