A Look Inside Teresa Giudice's Very Healthy Refrigerator

Among his many endearing qualities, Teresa Giudice's late father, Giacinto Gorga, had a contagious zest for food. A whiz in the kitchen himself — this is a man who would wake up at 6 a.m. to cook octopus — "Nonno" also loved a good restaurant meal, and reveled in a lavish holiday spread. So when she misses her dad, Teresa sometimes uses food to keep his memory alive. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey mama has cooked her father's signature dish, steak pizzaiola, in his honor — and she's even teaching her daughters how to whip up the cozy Italian meal. And over Labor Day weekend, the fitness buff ordered an eye-popping charcuterie board that paid tribute to Nonno in advance of his September 8 birthday

From Teresa's go-to charcuterie-board source, Plated by D, this spread featured tray upon tray of Italian-style snacks. There were meats, cheeses, dips, nuts, and crusty slices of bread; there was also tomato-mozzarella salad, big bunches of grapes, and tiny flower arrangements tucked into the buffet-style feast.

But most special of all, there was Nonno himself. The board was filled with framed photos of the beloved family patriarch.
