When I first heard of the Cake Boss I went bonkers as I actually live extremely close to them. Since we weren’t too far away my husband and I actually ventured out and bought ourselves a few goodies from their shop in Hoboken. Thankfully it was in the beginning of the fame and it wasn’t too crowded. Now if you want to go there’s usually lines out the door and down the street! Buddy has expanded the business and most of his cakes can be found in stores and even soon to be shipped online.
Buddy started on the Cake Boss on the TLC Channel, but did you know he also has a show called the Kitchen Boss? True Italian home cooked meals. When I heard about the book I was so eager to try the recipes. Each and everyone remind me of my grandfather. Straight off the boat from Italy! There’s nothing better than a homemade sauce, that perfect pasta, or even an Italian Dessert! The book has great tips and tricks and I absolutely love the beginning chapter where it goes into details about cooking methods and really explains it all for you!
One recipe that grabbed me right away was his pizza dough. I’ll never forget the episode on Cake Boss where they visited Italy. I knew it had to be good and I was so right! I made it and it took no time to rise and I had pizza within 3 hours!
