Marcella, whose name conjures up a splendid world of food for the devoted millions who love her books and attend her cooking classes, is back again with her finest book yet, Marcella Carina. Filled with the passion and personality of its author, it is a cookbook not only of fine food and its careful preparation but of personal reminiscences and penetrating commentary about the sensual pleasure of food and its place in our lives.

Marcella's devotion to both tradition and the integrity of the ingredients is obvious in every dish.
