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?
