Fordham Law alumnus Anthony LoFrisco ’58 was quoted in Brooklyn Daily Eagle about his published cookbook titled “The LoFrisco Family Cookbook: How Josie Brought Sicily to Brooklyn.”
Anthony LoFrisco didn’t set out to write a cookbook, but that’s what he ended up doing. How he got there is a tale of family love, the importance of honoring history and laughing out loud about fun times in the good old days.
LoFrisco’s book, which was published earlier this year by Trylon Publishing LLC, is titled “The LoFrisco Family Cookbook: How Josie Brought Sicily to Brooklyn.”
The book contains more than 100 recipes LoFrisco’s mother Josie cooked for the family, along with stories from LoFrisco’s life.
“What prompted me to write a cookbook was a request from my children to put together grandma’s recipes. They were kind enough not to add, ‘Before you die,’” he joked.
As a teenager, LoFrisco played baseball on one of St. Bernadette’s Catholic Youth Organization teams. He attended Saint Michael’s Diocesan High School on a scholarship and then went on to Fordham University, where he majored in Russian studies. He later attended Fordham Law School and graduated in 1958.
