Italian Food Philosophy

Scordo Italian food and recipes Feeding yourself and your family should be taken seriously. We don’t advocate preparing multi-course, French inspired, meals during the work week, but we encourage lovers of Italian food to make as much of the food they consume from scratch and take pride in spending time in the kitchen. In turn, our food philosophy is centered on three core tenants:

  • Eating at Home
  • Buying the best possible ingredients
  • Preparing satisfying and basic, Italian inspired, food

We believe that the food culture in America is changing for the better but, ultimately, are guided by the tenants and philosophy of Italian home cooking.
