Happy Mother's Day!
“My mother... she is beautiful, softened at the edges and tempered with a spine of steel.” - Jodi Picoult

As we reminisced about all the significant women who came before us, I thought of my maternal Italian grandmother, Christine, born at the turn of the century in Salerno. She did not speak a word of English; however, she got her message through quite well. I am sure she was always telling me to “eat!” We cannot replicate her pizza dough recipe—not for lack of trying! —but I do have her recipe for “gagootz.” Traditionally the dish made with the cucuzza squash, which is a long, hanging squash similar to zucchini. The Italian-American version uses sautéed zucchini squash, Hungarian peppers and potatoes simmered in crushed tomatoes. I use our saucier pan to fuse the flavors. This Mediterranean dish is simple, satisfying and healthy. Enjoy!
We look forward to connecting with you and fostering the copper pan community. Please feel free to share your thoughts and recipes on our blog or on social media.
