Christmas on Cobb was great!  It was peaceful, though rainy.  While it wasn't a white Christmas, it did snow in between rain showers!  It was too wet for the snow to stick but it looked pretty falling with the trees as a backdrop.In preparation for the holiday, I helped Lissa make all sorts of… MORE

Whew, what a busy time I've had with Lissa in Lake County, CA!  Lissa lives in the mountains, and is located about half an hour from the famous Napa County line, though there are plenty of grapes grown in Lake County as well, in addition to pears and walnuts, amongst other things.      When I… MORE

I have arrived in Dallas, TX to visit MrsFisher0729. It was a little hard for MrsFisher to find me when she came home. MrFisher put me by the door but since there are tons of boxes in their apartment my shipping box just blended in. MrsFisher found me and was excited about my… MORE

You can read about my first day at Mrs. Paula's in Mississippi here.  I've had a fun (but tiring) time following her around this week. Most days she either went to the hospital with her granddaughter or babysat baby brother at his house. So I got a break from cooking and, instead, spent my… MORE

I arrived at Mrs. Paula's house last night in Mississippi. Was she ever surprised! She has had a family emergency lately and wasn't expecting me, but there I was.

About Me
Hello everyone! I'm Chef Luigi, Chef Tony's little brother. My brother Tony got a new job, so I am now the new Allrecipes traveling Chef. I'll be traveling from home to home; cooking and having fun. I can't wait to visit everyone!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook EVERYTHING!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Well, I have to admit cooking with my brother Tony is my favorite tradition. We've been cooking together since we were kids. Sitting on counters watching and learning.
My cooking triumphs
When my brother Tony said I'm a better cook than he is! Ha :)
My cooking tragedies
There are too many to list, but that's how you learn, right?
