Chef Jessica Theroux spent a year travelling throughout Italy, cooking and talking with Italian grandmothers, learning their secrets and listening to their stories. The result is a charming and authentic collection of recipes, techniques, anecdotes, and photographs that celebrate the rustic and sustainable culinary traditions of Italy's most experienced home cooks. Features the histories and menus of fifteen grandmothers, each of whom welcomed Ms. Theroux into their kitchens and pantries and shared both their favorite dishes and personal wisdoms. From the dramatic winter shores of Ustica to the blooming hills of Tuscany in spring, readers will journey through Italy's most diverse regions and seasons, to discover the country's most delectable dishes, from the traditional to the unexpected, and meet the storied women who make them. Part travel diary, part photo essay, part cookbook, this book features over 100 time-honoured recipes, from the perfect panna cotta to the classic meat lasagna.
