Passing on The Art of Yovino Family Recipes

Being Italian and the life that I have lived, I have a huge passion for cooking. My father always wanted to share his skills with me. 

Recipes have been passed down from Yovino generations and are finally making it to me. I am so excited to spend one night a week via 

Skype with my father, Gary Yovino, cooking the evening away. I hope to someday have the opportunity to share this art with my twin 

boys, Kai Sylvan & Koda Edon Yovino!
