Description: You don't have to live in Italy to live like an Italian. In this inviting collection of meals and memories, well-known food writer Sharon Sanders unites an Italian sensibility to an American lifestyle. Sanders lived and worked, loved and married in Italy -- one of the few foreigners ever to wed in the celebrated Church of Santa Croce. With "I Brake for Italians," "Taking Time to Smell the Pasta," "What I Learned About Life from the Risotto King of Milan," and other spirited essays, Sanders escorts us to the Italy that is in everyone's kitchen. 

Keenly aware of how sharing food enhances daily living, and in tune with the simplicity' people crave today, she shares nearly 200 recipes made from seasonal produce, imported basics, and ingredients found in any supermarket. Most recipes are designed as complete meals at a glance. For special times, dozens of appetizer and dessert recipes may be added to the core dinners. 

Cooks ready for more ambitious projects may turn to "Making Rustic Bread," "Capturing Summer Flavors for All Meals," "Making Fresh Egg Pasta" and other lessons. The affordable wine selections enable everyone to raise a glass and offer a hearty salute to the spirit of Italy within all of us.
