Description: "It doesn't taste like Mama used to make it." How many times have you heard that in homes and restaurants?

The myth exists that Italian cooking just doesn't measure up to the authentic recipes that are prepared in Italy and at home by Italian immigrants. Or, is it a myth? Now's your chance to find out! 

The Little Italy Cookbook is a collection of recipes gathered from real people in Italian communities in such places as New York, Toronto, San Francisco. They arc recipes that have been brought over from the many regions of Italy by mothers, grandmothers, relatives and friends -- and that are now cooked here in the New World in Italian homes. 

The recipes, in many cases, have been adapted for local ingredients, but in all cases they are ones that the authors, Maria Pace and Louise Scaini-Jojic, have cajoled from people all over North America and have then tested so that they can be duplicated in your kitchen. 

So, enjoy yourself cooking and Bon Appetito!
