Description: In Sophia Loren's Recipes & Memories, one of our most beloved actresses presents 100 of her favorite Italian family recipes. Sophia has dedicated this book to her grandmother Luisa, who lived with her family in Pozzuoli, the small city near Naples where she grew up. Norma Luisa's skill left a lasting impression, and it is her spirit of improvisation above all that marks the recipes in Sophia's new cookbook.
Along with family specialties, Sophia's recipes come from all over Italy: a wonderful bean soup from Tuscany, Neapolitan pizzas, a risotto from Venice, fish from Sicily and vegetable preparations from the South. Sophia's love of pasta is well-known, and here you will find an enticing selection, among them the legendary Ragii alla Napoletana, which is made almost ritualistically for family dinner on Sunday. Simple antipasti; recipes for meat, fish, vegetables; and irresistible desserts round out this collection.
In addition to the recipes and the more than 100 photographs, Sophia shares anecdotes about her Neapolitan childhood and her legendary career in films. She takes us behind the scenes of some of the many movies she made with such stars and friends as Mucello Mastroianni and Cary Grant and shares the recipes that she discovered on location for various movies. Written with generosity, passion, and humor, Sophia Loren's Recipes & Memories is a cookbook to treasure for the story it tells as well as for the delicious family recipes it offers.
