Rossella is the host of the all new online cooking show and food webisode series, Cooking with Nonna and the recent winner of the Food Network - 24 Hour Restaurant Battle - Battle Italiano. Rossella was born into a family of culinary aficionado’s and food lovers. “Growing up, something was always on the stove,” says Rossella, the first generation Italian-American from Bensonhurst, Brooklyn.

Mola has approximately 26,000 inhabitants located south of Bari in the Southern Italian region of Apulia (Puglia).

Dear Friends,

Are you ready to celebrate Christmas?  Well I am!!!  Please join me and my two lovely Nonne:  Nonna Romana Sciddurlo from Puglia and Nonna Antoinette Capodicci from Campania as we demonstrate some traditional Christmas dishes from Puglia and Campania.

This Christmas Dinner extravaganza will take place at one of my favorite Connecticut restaurants, Trattoria 'A vucchella, owned by my Italian tour buddies Chef Pasquale DiMartino and Jennifer Galletti.   The dinner will be a four course meal where you will not only enjoy the food but will also learn how to make the dishes with me and  my Nonne. The holiday menu we have created for this event is a collaboration of traditions from the two regions. We will be fusing popular Christmas fish dishes with a modern twist to incorporate both Nonne's authentic recipes
