This is your Italian Family Photo Album!

Andrew Salera and family

Fans of are welcome to send me their Italian family photos to share!

---Here is how it works:---

Find an image that you feel captures the spirit of

Italian food, family and fun! Images of your whole family crowded around the table around the holidays or special occasion!

They may be vintage pics which conjure up images of childhood memories as well as ones in color!

Once you decide which ones, send me a email and attach them plus a description of the occasion. For example, " Selvaggio Christmas 1958!".

Add richness and tell me the story around the image, i.e..," We are all playing cards after dinner and eating chestnuts and drinking wine!  Little Andy was caught mixing 7up and Paisano!" :)

Why not let me know what you were eating as well I can create the recipe and write a post about it dedicated to your Italian family!

I will then upload them for you so you will be able to find them right here where you may view them anytime you like! 

Please send your pics to info[at]Cook-Italian[dot]com

Thank you and Enjoy our! Family Photo Album!
