My five-year granddaughter Amelia insists my entire family join in a huddle in the living room before leaving our home after a bir...thday party,a holiday meal, or just in-the-middle-of-a-week-night at Mimi and PopPop's house. She encourages us to come out of this huddle shouting, "Yay, family!" Even at her young age, Amelia has gotten the notion that being part of a family is something special to celebrate. If I've set this tradition in motion and influenced her, or my other grandchildren's desire to part of my family, I can rest knowing that I've done my job. My own love of family, cultivated long before I was born, by my grandmother, my mother, her sisters and brothers in the house at 435 Union Street in the Carroll Gardens section of Brooklyn, this is where I grew to appreciate having a loving family. It was that house, that family, those home-cooked meals that motivated me to present to you this book, My Two Mothers: A Memoir With Recipes. " The small 'village' she was born into and grew up is mostly gone. Patricia has shared her experience with us and we are richer for it."

My parents moved from West Virginia before I was born so what that meant was I spent all my summer vacations visiting my Grandpare...nts, aunts, uncles and cousins in West (by God) Virginia. I think it was given that name because of the fertile soil it possesses. The gardens that were created were beyond beautiful, originally gardens were what helped poor people survive but my family took it to a different art form. You can t imagine how large the plants grew and how tasty the vegetables were. It was from these gardens that a number of these recipes were born. Tomatoes, Peppers, Zucchini, Cucumbers, you will recognize this in the recipes. Herbs like Basil, Rosemary, Parsley, Oregano, were abundant. Like I said earlier, we monetarily were poor but rich in imagination and culinary skills. read more

If there is one book that belongs on the shelf of food lovers, it is Sicilian Food by Mary Taylor Simeti. This book is a classic, ...the definitive work on Sicilian cooking and it is full of authentic, hard to find recipes gleaned from the author's friends, family and acquaintances on the island itself. Originally published in 1989 under the title Pomp and Sustenance: Twenty Five Centuries of Sicilian Food and then unavailable for almost ten years, Mary Taylor Simeti’s affectionate, exhaustive work has come to be recognized as the definitive book on the food, traditions and recipes of this sun-drenched island. The author, an American married to a Sicilian, set out to discover Sicilian food first hand. She haunted former convents and palaces where Palermo's libraries have been maintained. She tested each ancient recipe herself and updated the methods. Her directions are clear and easy to follow. The book is organized so that the material reflects both the external influences of a series of conquerors, and the domestic changes brought about by peasant, clergy and aristocrat alike. Her chapter titles hint at the enticing discoveries waiting for the reader and the recipes reflect the chapter titles. There are recipes using the vegetable abundance of the Sicilian landscape, for ice cream or granita, and, yes there are recipes for Virgins Breasts and Chancellor's Buttocks. The book contains more than a hundred illustrations from Sicilian archives and museums and the text quotes freely from Homer, Plato, Apicius, Lampedusa, and Pirandello. Simeti's prose is so descriptive that to read it is to be in Sicily. read more

The fields of cookery and medieval food have recently drawn the attention of those interested in a panoramic picture of aristocrat...ic and bourgeois social life in the late Middle Ages. In the fifteenth century, wealthy courts in the Italian peninsula led all of Europe in gastronomical achievement. The professional cooks in palaces such as those of the Este, Medici, and Borgia families were the most advanced masters of their craft, and some of them bequeathed a record of their practice in manuscript collections of recipes.Outstanding among these early cookbooks is the one written by an anonymous master cook in Naples toward the end of the century. In its 220 recipes, we can trace not only the Italian culinary practice of the day but also the very refined taste brought by the Catalan royal family when they ruled Naples. This edition--with its introduction touching on the nature of cookery in the Neapolitano Collection, and its commentary on the individual recipes and its English translation of those recipes--will give the reader a glimpse into the rich fare available to occupants and guests of one of the greatest houses of late medieval Italy.The Neapolitan Recipe Collection offers a particularly delicious slice of the primary documentation necessary for understanding the nature of medieval society and one of its most important aspects.Terence Scully is Professor Emeritus of French, Wilfrid Laurier University, and the author, with D. Eleanor Scully, of Early French Cookery, also published by the University of Michigan Press. read more

Praised by Alice Waters, Marc Vetri, Brooks Headley, and others, a showcase of modern dishes influenced by tradition, as well as t...he rich culture of Rome.  Even 150 years after unification, Italy is still a divided nation where individual regions are defined by their local cuisine-- mirrors of their culture, history, and geography. But the cucina romana is the country’s greatest standout. In Tasting Rome, journalist Katie Parla and photographer Kristina Gill capture Rome's unique character and truly evolved food culture in this love letter to their adopted city. The recipes here, each selected for the story it tells, acknowledge the foundations of the cuisine and demonstrate how it has transitioned to the variations found today: cacio e pepe is not only a peppery condiment for pasta, but also a filling for suppli, fried rice balls; pollo alla romana is served as a summer platter of peppers stewed with chicken, but also deboned and on hearty sandwiches. Parla and Gill focus, too, on cucina ebraica to highlight the role Rome's Jewish communities have had, bringing dishes such as hraimi con couscous, which incorporates spicy amberjack, and matzoh fritters, pizzarelle, with honey and pine nuts; celebrate the authentic quinto quarto ("the fifth quarter") offal, and luscious verdure, which grow all over; acknowledge the baked pizzas and breads that anchor everyday eating; and explore the ever-changing culture of sweets and cocktails. With its forgotten recipes, beloved favorites, and street food innovations, the book transports all the flavors of Rome into your kitchen. Narrative features revealing bits of history and gorgeous photography that highlight both the food and its hidden city will immediately inspire you to start Tasting Rome. –Epicurious: Best Cookbooks of 2016 read more

Easy to use and simple to read, some of these recipes will be those "as seen" on TV in the eight years of "Molto Mario" programs on the Food Network, including those from "Mediterranean Mario," "Mario Eats Italy," and the all–new "Ciao America with Mario Batali." Batali's distinctive voice will provide a historical and cultural perspective with a humorous bent to demystify even the more elaborate dishes as well as showing ways to shorten or simplify everything from the purchasing of good ingredients to pre–production and countdown schedules of holiday meals. Informative head notes will include bits about the provenance of the recipes and the odd historical fact. Mario Batali's MOLTO ITALIANO will feature ten soups, thirty antipasti (many vegetarian or vegetable based), forty pasta dishes representing many of the twenty–one regions of Italy, twenty fish and shellfish dishes, twenty chicken dishes, twenty pork or lamb dishes and twenty side dishes, each of which can be served as a light meal.
