Franco and Margaret Romagnoli demonstrate and prepare classic Italian cuisine, which should not be confused with “Italian-American” food. For one thing, say the Romagnolis, most Italian-American dishes have much more spice and garlic than is the rule for most of Italy. It is in the countryside that the Romagnolis have discovered the essentials of each dish, the things that can be done simply, on a daily basis, by people who don’t have the time to cook all day.
