Welcome to Germano’s, my culinary playground where I share my family’s treasured sauce recipes and cooking tips! I’m Sofia Germano, the mastermind behind this delicious platform, GermanosTrattoria.com.
Growing up as the daughter of an Italian chef who ran the beloved Germano’s Restaurant, I was always in awe of my dad. He had this incredible talent for whipping up warm, comforting dishes that brought the biggest smiles to people’s faces. I dreamed of becoming a chef like him, but he had other plans for me. He saw the potential in me to run the business side of things, so that’s what I did.
But, you know what they say, you can’t keep a true foodie away from the kitchen! I found every chance I could to sneak my way in and learn from the best – my dad. Despite taking over Germano’s when my father passed away, times were tough, and closing the restaurant was an emotional roller coaster for me.
That’s when it hit me. I could still honor my dad’s legacy and spread the love for Italian cuisine through my food blog – Germano’s. I was like, “Hello? This is the perfect way to keep the flame alive and saucy!” And, let me tell you, starting this journey has been an absolute hoot.
On this blog, I pour my heart into sharing our treasured sauce recipes, cooking tips, and sometimes hilarious stories about my family. I promise what you find here is genuine, from the heart, and, of course, downright scrumptious. You’ll feel like we’re besties, chatting over a plate of steaming pasta!
And oh, did I mention I’m a mom to two adorable kiddos? You bet they’ll make some guest appearances in my stories. They can make you laugh until you burst!
So, what are you waiting for? Grab a glass of wine, a bowl of pasta, and let’s dive into the saucy world of Germano’s. As we say in Italian, “Mangia” and enjoy the ride!
