About the Author

RoseMarie grew up in Colonial Heights, Yonkers, New York. After graduating from business school, she got her first job for Look Magazine. She was an avid amateur downhill skier, and in the winter of 1964, she set out to ski in Europe.
It was during this trip that she met her husband, Rocco Panio, a prominent professional soccer player. They were engaged by Easter and married in September. For almost a decade, they lived in Tuscany, near the Ligurian Coast and in Umbria and Torino. Their travels and his game schedule took them to every region of Italy.
In July of 1971, they returned to the United States to live and raise their two children. A year later, they opened Panio Wines and Liquors. Their goal was to pass along their love of Italian regional wines and foods. They returned to Italy as often as possible to reconnect with family and friends. This new career would go on for 40 years. They are now retired and spend part of the year in Italy with family and friends throughout the peninsula and its islands.
RoseMarie's interest in cooking and wine started in her parents' home. They taught her the importance of family dining. They made their own wine and prepared traditional dishes. She and Rocco have continued this ritual of dining together with their children and grandchildren for Sunday dinner.
RoseMarie started putting a collection of recipes together so her mother's recipes, as well as those she collected as her cooking evolved over the many years and visits back to the old country would not be lost or forgotten.
