About the Book.
In Feast of the Seven Fishes: A Brooklyn Italian’s Recipes Celebrating Food and Family, Daniel Paterna takes you on magical journey into a hidden world. Through recipes handed down in his family, stunning photos taken by the author himself, and three-generations of memories, Paterna reveals the soulful, humorous, and always delicious history of Italian-Americans in Brooklyn.
Paterna is the real deal, a second-generation Italian-American, whose family has preserved their culture from the shores of Naples to the streets of Bensonhurst. He’ll show you how to make long-forgotten recipes like stuffed calamari and he’ll take you to the stores, restaurants, and bakeries where artisans are still doing things the old way.
