Giuliano Hazan grew up surrounded by riches – culinary riches – as the son of world famous American Italian cooking pioneer Marcella Hazan. In fact, many call his family the “First family of Italian Cooking in America”. Since being immersed in a passion for cooking since youth, it is understandable and natural that the apple did not fall far from the tree. Giuliano, the product of a close family that shared both cooking expertise and culinary traditions has taken his classical kitchen roots, and spread them.
In his newest book Hazan Family Favorites, Chef Giuliano shares some of his favorite family recipes, those special recipes that he prepares at home for his wife, Lael, and his two daughters Gabriella and Michela. Each recipe, culled from family legacies, is accompanied by a taste thought or memory. Many are rescued from a 56-year-old notebook, and from cooking and eating with his beloved grandmothers, Nonna Giulia and Nonna Mary.
Giuliano has taken his rich culinary heritage, updated it, expanded it and shared it through the 85 recipes of this book.
In summer, along with his wife, Lael, Giuliano runs a cooking school in Verona, Italy and lives in Florida the rest of the year. He has written five cookbooks and now has an Ipad app as well!

KosherEye and our panel of kosher knowledgeable chefs, cookbook authors and foodies are always available to help in ingredient substitution. In fact, for this cookbook, we will ask the Hazan family. If you enjoy Italian food, there are recipe gems in this book that you don’t want to miss…including Minestrone Soup, (we substitute vegetarian broth when adding the optional parmigiano sprinkle) Farfalle with sausage (For example, we use Jack’s kosher Sausage for meat, Lightlife for vegetarian)
