Description

In today's hectic world, few find time to cook for the sheer love of it. Inspired by her mother's wonderful food, Lella Antinozzi provides the perfect antidote to our culinary ills, passing on the traditional recipes from her mother's kitchen. A feast for the eyes and stomach as well as the soul, this book celebrates a mother's cultural and culinary legacy. Just one generation ago, Italian life revolved around one thing - food. Delicious smells would drift from Italian kitchens from early morning until late in the evening. Lella Antinozzi was lucky enough to be raised in a house with one of these kitchens. Inspired by her mother's wonderful food, Lella has created a cookbook that celebrates the food she grew up with. This is not just a cookbook, but the story of her mother - Rosetta - and her dedication and total commitment to cooking. Rosetta learned to cook from her mother, her grandmother and other women in the family. These recipes have been handed down by generations of women who put their considerable passion into cooking. They represent all Italian women who express their creativity as a sacred rite in the kitchen. Beautifully illustrated with atmospheric, sumptuous photography, this book will transport you to the warmth southern Italy and allow you to savour for yourself the secrets of this region's culinary history.
