Meet the Author

Thomas S. DeGraziano is the first generation of his family to speak English as a firstlanguage. His mother, Mary Harrison DeGraziano, spoke Slovak first and English second, while his father, Peter Frank DeGraziano, first spoke Italian.

Thomas graduated from Berwick High School in 1960, earned undergraduate and graduate degrees at Bloomsburg State College, as well as attended a variety of other educational institutions, eventually earning a PhD equivalence. As a science educator, Thomas taught students in grades six through 12, and up through graduate school. As Magnet School Coordinator in a major U.S. school system, he was also instrumental in the start and structuring of a high school science magnet school prior to retiring.

Thomas' mother, Mary Harrison DeGraziano, passed away in the early 90's and left behind a glorious collection of delicious recipes that fed our family for three generations as we made the transition from immigrants to Americans. This fascinating book contains that history, these recipes and those pictures.

    From the kitchens of Mother, her mother, family and friends over three generations

    Ordered not knowing what to expect. We are extremely pleased and pleasantly surprised. Have made a number of the recipes and they are unique and most delicious. Have we forgotten how to cook truly exceptional meals without a lot of fuss? This book will remind you. Also a very artful cookbook: The cover is beautiful the page layout often is entertaining, and the FONT SIZE is large and lines are spaced generously to make reading at a distance while cooking very easy, unlike most cookbooks. A bit of Family History and Background give the cookbook a touch of fascinating genealogy we can all relate to. As the book states 'These recipes were tested and improved in the kitchens of my mother, her mother, family and friends over three or more generations as we made the transition from immigrants into full red- blooded Americans.' A cookbook of stature, history, exceptional food treats and treasures. Surely, there is a place in every heart, and every kitchen, for this jewel among cookbooks. We are so very pleasantly surprised with the hardback, and have ordered several more for friends and family who seem spellbound by it's recipes, history and artwork. Go for it. You will not be sorry.

    Best Gosh Darn Cookbook Anywhere!!!

    A fascinating, delightful and beautifully presented cookbook. Truly a work of art. This is pictoral, historical and culinary masterpiece tracing the journey of a family of European immigrants into full-blooded Americans over three generations, featuring the very recipes that fed them along the way. Intriguing, spellbinding and just plain scrumptious, this cookbook is a 'must have.' Often given as a gift (with great feedback). Creates high interest among my club members and friends. Now left out on the dining table as a 'conversation piece.' Never fails to fascinate. Excellect Choice!!!
