Cucuzza – Stew
Ghiotta di Cucuzza
by James Belardo

The cucuzza, a simple summer squash from Sicily. It’s actually a pretty incredible plant, typically growing on trellises as the squash can grow up to (and beyond) 6-feet long! One cucuzza can be used to feed quite a few people. Louis Prima wrote a song about it in the 50s celebrating cucuzza, and it was a hit! My Cucuzza

Having an abundance of this vegetable created a challenge, we had to come up with different ways to prepare it. We’re looking forward to this years harvest! Here’s a simple and tasty vegetarian stew, try it when you get a chance! Cucuzza – Stew

f’Rican Tasty!
A small island with a big heart, Puerto Rican food culture is a melange of Spanish, African and Taino cuisine. It’s typically compared to Cuban and Mexican for obvious reasons and while it does have similarities, the subtle differences make it wonderfully unique. Try our take on Puerto Rican Rice and Beans we’re sure you’ll be craving more.

V-i-Peas!
This weeks featured recipe is a salute to Cucina Povera (the kitchen of the poor), but it’s as rich and tasty as can be. This particular version was influenced by one of our friends from overseas, Ada Parisi of Siciliani Creativi. Her roots run deep and are only a short distance from Zio James. Have fun preparing Polpette e Piselli (Meatballs Stewed with Peas)
