RICOTTA PANZAROTTI WITH MARINARA SAUCE

RICOTTA PANZAROTTI WITH MARINARA SAUCE by Linda Tay Esposito

I learned how to make the panzarotti from a chef with the same last name as I in Sorrento. Esposito is a very common name in the Naples area. She was tickled to see an Asian Esposito.

PENANG FRIED KUEY TEOW

PENANG FRIED KUEY TEOW by Linda Tay Esposito
