Family Traditions Stir the Pot at The Pasta Peddler

Family Traditions Stir the Pot at The Pasta Peddler

Mike Sedia has fond memories of days that have long since passed, when he would watch his mother and grandmother prepare homemade ravioli by hand to feed their hungry family. 

“We’re Italian, and that’s what we would do on a Sunday,” recalled Mike. “Everyone loved that pasta. We always said that we should sell their pasta and sauce.”

Little did Mike know that he was predicting the future. Today, he is the proud co-owner — along with his son-in-law Eric Amodeo — of The Pasta Peddler, a business that has now been in the family since 1994.
