My political days in the NYS Assembly, with Representative Robert J. Connor (Democrat, 96th Assembly District), 1976.

Then…. Working as a legislative aide for the New York State Assembly, 1976 (right). With Representaive Robert J. Connor (96th A.D.), center.

Come join me at L’Italo-Americano, my new soapbox for Italian cooking. My introductory essay, how I went from political aide to professional eater, is my Italian-American story, here.

  1. Thank you Julia for sharing your “story”…I very much enjoyed reading about your journey to the place you are now. Your comment on the meaning of nourishing people and honoring those who came before is something I have always felt….not only does it bring comfort to those one cooks for, but also brings comfort and a feeling of pleasure to the cook by being able to do so. Your joy in what you do comes through loud and clear in not only your words but in the many photos you share with us!

    • This message seems to have fallen through the cracks, Phyllis– apologies for the late reply. I’m glad to read your good words. Yes, indeed, cooking brings me joy. Food is God, after all, or at least, that’s how I see it. It gives us life.
