Peter Salerno wishes Merry Christmas to award-winning clients…

As 2014 draws to a close, the Christmas and holiday season gives us all one more chance to spend time with family, friends and loved ones. At Peter Salerno Inc., we’ve been blessed that our family has expanded – in more ways that one!

Peter and Tracy Salerno welcomed a new son-in-law into their lives, as their beautiful daughter Gabrielle married Brian Mayer. Anthony Salerno celebrated his first year of marriage to wife Eve in style in the UK. The office even an unofficial Peter Salerno Inc. “mascot”, as an adorable Boston Terrier named Harper joined the team.

Peter Salerno spent a wonderful 72 hours bringing his kitchen designs to Russia.
Happy Holidays to our wonderful new friends in Russia…

Just as important to Peter Salerno Inc. is our family of new and existing clients, who we are proud to call not only our clientele but our friends. Peter Salerno and his team work tirelessly to earn their clients’ trust, and the reward is world-class, award-winning custom kitchen and bath designs.

2014 was an amazing year, with Peter Salerno Inc. winning the NKBA’s Best Small Kitchen award, being named a finalist for the KBIS Innovative Showroom awards, and creating kitchen and bath designs not just in New Jersey and the United States, but abroad in beautiful regions of Russia and Canada as well.

Peter Salerno’s ingredients list for his secret family homemade cavatelli recipe!

With the holidays approaching, Peter Salerno and his family are spending more and more time in his custom designed, award-winning kitchens than ever. But sometimes instead of designing kitchens, Peter is at home in his own kitchen designing authentic, homemade Italian meals.

Last weekend, Peter and his family (wife Tracy, son Anthony and daughter-in-law Eve, daughter Gabrielle and son-in-law Brian) gathered for a delicious homemade Italian dinner, which included the Salerno family recipe for the perfect cavatelli.

Now, the Salerno family recipe for cavatelli is supposed to be a well-kept secret – but it’s the holidays, and Peter Salerno felt like sharing just a “little bit” of the family recipe. (Just like his award-winning kitchen designs: what good are they if they’re not shared with others?)

So Peter’s sharing his surprisingly simple list of ingredients for the perfect homemade cavatelli recipe with you here, as well as some pictures from his preparation of the dish. As for the preparation steps themselves? Well, those may have to come at another time. After all, Peter’s parents might have something to say about that!

Peter Salerno’s Homemade Cavatelli Recipe Ingredients

  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 lb. ricotta cheese

Amazing Video: Watch HDTV Rotate, Disappear Into Kitchen Counter Design

It’s not just beautiful kitchen design and custom cabinetry that make Peter Salerno Inc. the most award-winning kitchen design firm in North America over the last decade. That level of excellence requires commitment to innovation, technology, and forward-thinking design.

Proof of Peter Salerno Inc.’s commitment to outstanding, client-focused kitchen design with a flair for the dramatic can be found in a brand new kitchen design from Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey.

Together with architect Bob Zampolin, Peter Salerno Inc. created an amazing kitchen counter that doubles as a hiding place for a flat screen HD television.

Not only does the HDTV emerge and disappear seamlessly into the kitchen counter, it is able to rotate a full 360 degrees, and is entirely operable by remote control. (Yes, seriously.)

If you need video proof of this amazing kitchen design innovation, the rotating 360-degree TV, and the entire design in action – we have two videos in this article for you to enjoy!

For more kitchen design photos from this beautiful Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey home, click on THIS link and read about the entire kitchen design project!

Peter Salerno, architect Bob Zampolin and the Woodcliff Lake, NJ homeowner were all thrilled with how the rotating automated TV design turned out, and couldn’t wait to share these videos with the world!

Peter Salerno and the design team at Peter Salerno Inc. are at it again, bringing their award-winning kitchen design skills to a drop-dead gorgeous home in Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey. One look at the exterior of this home, and Peter knew that this home deserved a stunning kitchen on the inside to match the sheer beauty of the outside.

Winners of the 2014 NKBA Best Small Kitchen and 2012 NKBA Best Overall Kitchen awards, Peter Salerno Inc. was the perfect choice to provide smart, opulent and striking kitchen design to this New Jersey home. The use of stone was pivotal in the kitchen design, to match the wonderful use of stone on the exterior of the home.

Peter Salerno and his team decided the best use of that stone would be in a stunning fireplace, which you can see in the kitchen design photo below. The stone fireplace and chimney are accented on either side by custom hand-crafted cabinetry, a signature of Peter Salerno Inc. design.

The use of Peter Salerno’s “Maestro Rosolino” custom cabinetry continues throughout the interior space and kitchen design. A second fireplace with wall-mounted HDTV is  flanked by another pair of custom cabinets elsewhere in the interior space, matching the rich, dark wood of the flooring (see photo below).

Perhaps the most striking, modern facet of the kitchen design is a hidden flat-panel television that emerges seamlessly from kitchen counter space. The TV then rotates a full 360 degrees, is fully automated and operable by remote control, and disappears (again, seamlessly) back into the counter. FULL video of this 360 HDTV kitchen design feature is available by clicking THIS LINK.

In the end, the only thing left to do after installing beautiful cabinetry, a gorgeous custom backsplash, state-of-the-art appliances, a jaw-dropping 360 degree rotational HDTV, stone fireplace and much more – well, Peter Salerno was glad to pop open a bottle of wine with architect Bob Zampolin and the happy homeowner!

The importance of Thanksgiving can’t be exaggerated. It’s a holiday that focuses on family, togetherness, love and warmth. For one Thursday in November, family, friends and loved ones gather around a table to celebrate and give thanks for what they have, and give thanks for one another.

Not everyone is so lucky. According to the USDA, nearly 20% of American households experienced food insecurity within the last 2 years. That number includes 8.2 million American children. The challenge of providing enough food to eat for everyone in America may seem impossible – but helping those in need eat for one day a year doesn’t have to be.

For Thanksgiving 2014, Peter Salerno and Peter Salerno Inc. invite you, your family and your place of business to participate in the Thanksgiving Turkey Donation Challenge. It’s inexpensive, it’s easy, and you can’t replace the feeling you get knowing you’re giving a family in need a Thanksgiving turkey.

You may think people are not going hungry in your town. They are. You may think one turkey couldn’t possibly change a family’s life this Thanksgiving. It does.

A turkey costs about $20. We challenge you to go out, buy a turkey, and bring it to your local food pantry or soup kitchen. Trust us – they will be glad to accept it.

How to JOIN the 2014 Thanksgiving Turkey Donation Challenge:

Then, SHARE your participation in the Thanksgiving Turkey Donation Challenge with us! Here’s how:

  1. Buy a Thanksgiving turkey for those in need. (Or buy a few!)
  2. Deliver the turkey(s) to your local food pantry or soup kitchen.
  3. Take a picture of you, your turkey and your delivery.
  4. Post that picture on Twitter or Facebook with the hashtag #TurkeyChallenge.
  5. Follow or mention Peter Salerno Inc. on Twitter and Facebook, and join the conversation!

Here’s the best part: Peter Salerno Inc. will MATCH donations, turkey-for-turkey, up to the first 100 turkeys donated between now and Thanksgiving! All you need to do is post a picture of your turkey donation to Peter Salerno Inc.’s Facebook page with the hashtag #TurkeyChallenge!

Join Peter Salerno and Peter Salerno Inc. in making the 2014 Thanksgiving Turkey Donation Challenge a reality. We encourage you to make it a part of your annual Thanksgiving ritual as well.

Somewhere, someone’s Thanksgiving will mean a lot more because of you.
