Coconut meringue pie.
The original Mama Z was Edna Zulpo. Back in 1988 she and her kin were getting together what they thought was going to be a pasta factory. Demand being what it was, a restaurant was born instead, and homemade pasta is delivered to tables every day the place is open. It's still made from the recipes Edna got from her Nona (her grandmother).
And then there's the coconut meringue pie. A big fluffy slice, the coconut is incorporated through the traditional meringue with flakes of coconut infused through the very light custard. The flour crust ends up soaked with a little light coconut flavor -- a perfect way to end a homemade Italian meal.
