I would like very much to share with you the progress I have made on my endeavor to publish my books. Shortly before Christmas I was signed by a literary agent in New York City! Read on…
I am pleased to announce that I will be heading back out to sea on-board Celebrity Cruises’ ship the “Reflection” as guest chef for her majestic transatlantic crossing from beautiful Barcelona, Spain to magnificent Miami.
California, here I come! I’m heading to Napa Valley to attend the “Worlds of Flavor” conference and festival from November 1–3, 2012. This year the focus will be on the “Arc of Flavors” and “Culinary Exchange”, from the Mediterranean and Middle East to Asia. Interesting? You bet!
Inspirational Cooking, by my definition would be the act of motivating others to get up, moving again and become re-energized about life, after going through moments of hardships, through the excitement of cooking and all the healing benefits it can bring to one’s mind, body and spirit – accomplishing this by the mere act of physically cooking.
HomeTowne Television and I are hoping that the fun and inspiration of this all will lead you to the Summit Farmer’s market or to the local summertime food markets in your area.
Celebrity Cruise Line proudly presents Chef Franco Lania as their “VIP Guest Chef” on-board the Silhouette. This world cruise leaves from the port of Bayonne, N.J. and heads to Lisbon, Portugal.

“Jersey Gems with Chef Franco” is pleased to announce it’s first showing on HomeTowne TV on Easter Sunday 2012. This show has an Easter theme where Chef Franco showcases Iselin, New Jersey’s, Oak Tree Road area, also known as “Little India”. The neighborhood is home to a Halal butcher shop where Franco purchases a goat and returns home to prepare a delicious Easter-themed Mediterranean dish. Enjoy!
The television show “Jersey Gems” with Chef Franco will bring to the forefront things of a culinary nature that would surprise many when thinking of the State of New Jersey – bringing to life culinary gems and places that New Jerseyans can be proud of.
“Inspirational Cooking” is a therapeutic concept that Franco Lania shares in this post. To use the act of cooking to inspire others to get up and moving again once they are faced with hardships that have caused them to loose their “zest” for life. The act of cooking with this kind of conscious awareness can be just as powerful and healing to some as is the act of eating nutritionally balanced foods.
