Cooking With Gia
Friends, laughter and memorable meals- This is what happens in Gia’s kitchen
Meet Gia Loria – My sweet and talented friend who hails from the town of Limbadi, Italy. Everything about Ms. Gia is authentic italian. Beginning with the freshly made cup of espresso that she immediately greets me with minutes after arriving. Homemade sauces, bread and pasta are her specialty. A wife to (Steve) and mother of two who frequently makes little yummy after school surprises of breadsticks and fried rice balls for her daughter Maryann and son Josiah (lucky kids). My request for her this day was to share with me her family’s classic Eggplant Parmesan 101 recipe. This she was happy to share along with a couple of extra specialties Stuffed Eggplant and Homemade bread which will be featured on the blog in the weeks to come. I was honored that she took the time to so generously share her talents and craft with me. Especially when it came to making the bread, it’s truly a lost art. All that kneading of the dough was a very wonderful process.
