Italia's Tomato Ice Cube Salad

This refreshing salad is best, Italia wrote in her cookbook, on a hot summer day when you can pick tomatoes right from your own garden.

Italia Coppola's Braciole

Our Red Blend is dark and luscious, making it a worthy partner to Italia Coppola’s Braciole with Rich Tomato Sauce. Not only does this savory dish have a beautiful presentation, it tastes delicious with our wine’s dark, jammy berry flavors and its fragrant notes of violets, spices, and toasted oak.

Tomato-Cucumber Salad with Yogurt

 When Italia was raising her children in the 1930’s, 40’s and 50’s, yogurt was nowhere near as ubiquitous as it is now. You often had to find it in a health food store or a Greek market, if there was one near you. Now the problem is to decide which yogurt among dozens of choices to use.

Italia's Quick Tomato Sauce

This sauce is a bit heartier than the sauces that do not contain carrots and celery, but it is just as simple to make. Serve it with pasta, polenta and with any dish that calls for tomato sauce.

Italia's Tomato-Mozzarella Loaf

Be sure to have plenty of napkins on the table, as this rustic loaf must be eaten with your fingers. Use the best in-season tomatoes you can find and if you can pluck them off the vines moments before slicing them, that's just perfect. This rustic loaf is from Mama Coppola's Pasta Book.

Mussels with Tomato Sauce

When Italia cooked mussels, she likely had to trim their long seaweed beards and scrub off, if possible, the barnacles who had attached themselves to the shells. Advances in shellfish cultivation has changed everything and made it much easier for home cooks to both get good mussels and prepare them.
