Cake Boss - Buddy Valastro

PAGE 56:

One night, the family prepared an enormous feast for us; the centerpiece was capreto (baby goat), which Freddy's father, Mario, procured from the family farm, slaughtered, and cooked on a spit in a wood-burning oven.


  1. Um, ick! LOL I'll have mine up in the morning. :-)

  2. Can't say that I've ever eaten goat, but it sounds like a wonderful family celebration!

  3. Eww...goat? Now the cake on the cover looks yummy :)

  4. Well, the cake part looks good...not so sure about the goat! LOL

  5. I think it's a cultural thing. A long time ago I tasted barbecued goat and it was good. Looks like a great book. I love cookbooks.

  6. Hi Freda,
    I read that book last week. Really enjoyed reading about the author's life. Have a great day!

    Just Books

  7. Umm, that doesn't make me want to try baby goat either. Thanks for the image, now I just have to somehow get it out of my head. LOL!

  8. Never have really gotten into goat that much yet. I've tried it a few times, but maybe it wasn't well prepared. When I've eaten it, it has mostly been fixed in stews, but I was not at all impressed.

    Reading food books makes me hungry.

    Tossing It Out

  9. I love mutton, goat is probably close enough.

  10. Hi!

    "Let all that you do be done with love."

  11. I have tried goat and it was pretty good but I would prefer not to know where it came from I think. I like the cover.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
