After eating life-changing meatballs at Zuppardo’s (est.1937) I realized I had not dusted off my Italian cooking game in a little while so I hit the kitchen to see if I could even come close to the cuisine that the descendants of Francis Zuppardo are bringing to table.

I ground some pork and beef and blended it with plenty garlic, red chile flakes and fresh parsley then charred the meatballs up in a castiron skillet before drowning them in red sauce and simmering them for the rest of the afternoon.

Hopefully Mrs Zuppardo was smiling down upon my modest efforts all the while
