The old Leone's restaurant

pat hammond | Nov 22, 2000 01:00 PM

Browsing the ancient stacks of my new little library, The Skowhegan Free Public Library, I came across a little book called Leone's Italian Cookbook. It was published in 1966 with a foreword by Dwight Eisenhower!I went to Leone's while it was still owned by that family. It was sold in 1959. This is a fine little cookbook. The antipasto section is worth the entire book.(Eg. The calamari salad sounds a lot like mine, except theirs has mashed anchovies.) Anybody out there familiar with it, or the restaurant in it's heyday? pat
