Clam Belles and Apizza is a Chef's memoir of the foods I ate growing up in the Northeast that inspired me to become a chef. The stories are about foods that my grandmothers (Nonnies), my mother, my stepfather, waitresses, chefs and other maniacs MADE me eat. From "Abeetz", Clam Bellies and Subs in New Haven, to cheap Vietnamese and Indian food in Boston and Cambridge, to munching my way through the 1980's East Village, I have eaten everything, and now I cook everything! I've been in the "Chef's Life" for over 40 years and I still love the foods I ate growing up.
