Meatballs al Forno Dinner for 4

Chef Nancy Silverton’s iconic oven-baked meatballs are made with pork and veal, and they come with tomato sauce, parsley, and Parmigiano Reggiano for sprinkling. This kit pairs them up with their perfect partner: garlic knots!

Acclaimed chef Nancy Silverton worked with culinary icons including Jonathan Waxman and Wolfgang Puck, and co-founded the hugely influential Campanile and the iconic La Brea Bakery, before opening the doors to Osteria Mozza in Los Angeles in 2007. Mozza has repeatedly been named one of the very best Italian restaurants (and restaurants in general) in all of LA, and Silverton has since gone on to open additional restaurants including Pizzeria Mozza and chi SPACCA. Silverton has mentored and inspired an entire generation of chefs, and she’s won countless honors, including the 2014 James Beard Award for Outstanding Chef.
