When serving as the bishop of the Diocese of Bridgeport, I was delighted whenever I received an invitation to dine with the priests at St. Joseph’s parish in Danbury. For I knew what awaited me: a splendid meal, lovingly prepared by a gifted cook, Franca. The food was always superb, and I felt transported back to Italy each time. Thus, I was very happy indeed to learn of Franca’s collaboration with Father Matthew Mauriello and their soon-to-be-published cookbook.

Several times each year, Fr. Matt invited a group of priests for a fraternal gathering and a home-cooked Italian meal. It was always a treat! Everything was prepared from scratch by him; from the large platters of antipasto to the manicotti or tortellini, then a main course, followed by Tiramisù or freshly-made ice cream. There was even home-made Limoncello. The excellent meal was accompanied by warm conversation and conviviality among the brother priests. It seemed that Fr. Matt’s joy in serving as a priest was the secret ingredient in his cooking. Those were very memorable gatherings.
