"I love to cook, I'm very passionate about it!  It's all in my genes! You see, my Dad S. Rocco Tomaselli was Rhode Island's top chef in the 60's & 70's. He made The Golden Lantern in Warwick, RI famous. He was the choice of chefs for many celebrities including Liberace and Danny Kaye, who all performed at The Warwick Tent. My mother (Lillian, DiSegna, Tomaselli) was from a family of bakers, and some are still bakers today!"
