Celebrity Cook Danny Zaino shows you how to make Neapolitan Margherita Pizza, Calzone, Stromboli, Garlic Knots, and Believe it or Not French Fries!
Neapolitan Margherita Pizza can be traced back to 1866. In 1889 Raffaele Esposito's version for Queen Margherita in her name was the one that made it popular resembling the colors of the Italian flag, red (tomato), white (mozzarella), and green (basil). Since then it has grown into one of the most recognizable symbols of Italian food culture in the world.
Calzone is a type of pizza that is folded in half before cooking to contain a filling.
Stromboli is a type of rolled turnover filled with various Italian cheeses (typically mozzarella) and cold cuts (typically Italian meats such as salami, capocollo and bresaola) or vegetables.
Garlic Knots are made from left over pizza dough. A type of garlic bread found primarily in pizzerias around New York City and the surrounding regions. They were developed in the 1940s in Brooklyn.
Celebrity Cook Danny Zaino shows you how to make Brazilian Seafood Bisque, Rome/Italian Linguine & Clam Sauce, and Scampo Lobster Shrimp Scampi.
Origin of Linguine & Clam Sauce - This is the quintessential Italian pasta dish especially in Naples and Rome. The clams are the smaller ones "vongole veraci" and they are always cooked in their shells.
Here in the United States (New York City) it is cooked the same way and sometimes you will find it cooked with the clams chopped.
