“Throughout my career, I’ve spent a lot of time on the road. Despite the excitement of show business, I always looked forward to returning to Philadelphia for one of my mother’s home cooked meals. She was a wonderful cook and inspired a lot of the dishes in this collection,” said Frankie Avalon. “In addition to authentic Italian recipes, what makes these items special are the ingredients. We didn’t cut any corners and demanded the best flavors from around the world, including chocolate from Belgian and sea salt from Sicily. I’m really proud of what we’ve created and I can’t wait to share these mouthwatering foods with families everywhere.”

Premiering May 28 at midnight, 1am, 3am, 6am, 10am and 8pm ET, Avalon will debut a variety of authentic Italian favorites, including appetizers, entrées and desserts, many of which include imported Italian ingredients.
