I thought I read about an Italian place in Antioch that sounded like the old Bertola's in Oakland. Family style, bountiful soup, bread, drinks, etc. Maybe it wasn't Antioch, but it was in that vicinity. Any answers out there???
A roasted boneless leg of lamb makes an impressive centerpiece for your table, but this recipe is easy enough to pull off any time. A classic gremolata perfumes the lamb; the mixture of garlic, lemon, and parsley holds its own against the strong flavor of the meat.
This classic should be in every Southern woman's repertoire. A moist, delicious Chocolate-Mayonnaise Cake pleases crowds of all ages, and is the perfect dessert to bring to a neighbor, to a potluck, or to a summer party.
