Buddy Valastro of TLC’s Next Great Baker wows his family with an Italian classic
I grew up with four older sisters, and every Sunday our extended family got together for dinner. After my dad passed away when I was 17, I dropped out of school to take over as head of his bake shop, Carlo’s Bakery in Hoboken, N.J. Now, even though I’m the baby brother, I’m the head of the family.
My wife, Lisa, and I have the whole family over on Sundays. At the table are my sisters, nieces, nephews, and our four kids. We have Sunday gravy—tomato sauce for pasta—and we pass around platters of sausages and meatballs. We take a lot of pride in our dinners. Nothing brings families together like food.
