Additional Details

Description: Here is authentic Italian home-cooking at its best. Elodia Rigante, a second-generation Italian American, was raised in New York's "Little Italy" -- and she is a virtuoso cook of traditional Italian fare. 

In these pages, Elodia not only shares her prized recipes but also evokes the spirit behind her cooking. She invites us into her home, to meet the members of her family. In doing so, she provides us with a taste of the old Italy that her parents brought with them to the New World at the beginning of the 1900s. 

Elodia takes us to an era when the "old timers," those born in Italy but living in America, grew figs in their backyards and made wine in their basements, a time when her mother made pasta by hand on the kitchen table and picked fresh herbs from the kitchen garden to create traditional, aromatic, and mouth-watering meals. 


Condition: Good condition. Dust jacket has some creases at the corners.
