Meet the Grandma behind Momma's Meatballs and learn about the generations of cooks that influence the cusine at La Fine
My name is Philomena Davino Realmuto. I was born in Naples where all vegetables were fresh and from the farms. I came to America in 1930.
My family had a restaurant in Coney Island, NY in the 1930's where they cooked only the best baked clams, veal spiedini and chicken cacciatore. All the tomato sauce and meat sauce was made from fresh tomatoes right in the back of the restaurant.
I was brought up cooking only the best. My daughter was very interested in cooking and learned from me and my mother in-law who was Sicilian and had her own style of cooking which was superb.
My daughter Denise is an excellent cook. Her meatballs are beyond delicious and her chicken cacciatore is superb, and lets not talk about her spiedini, olive salad, and roasted peppers. She learned from all the best Italian cooks.
