Editorial Reviews

Review

recipes included as an added bonus. Simeti begins with the classical era (with Odysseus himself, and a recipe for fava bean soup) and concludes with a chapter on Sicily's special ice creams and gelati; her wit and pleasing style make her observations on food, eating habits, and culture as addictive as some of the dishes she describes.'

Great book but do note that this book is also published under the name Pomp and Substenance.

I have read other books by Mary Taylor Simeti. I would love to meet her. The recipes are converted so we in the USA or the UK can figure out the amounts. This isn't just a recipe book. In between the recipes are historical comments, her view of the recipes and times, and diary quotes regarding food and events. I doubt if I will make many of the recipes. I am not much of an adventurous cook. Some of the pastries, and ices sound easy enough for me. I am a person who buys cookbooks hoping it will make me a good cook. Alas, it hasn't. But if you are adventurous and want to know reliable, authentic recipes, this is a good book for you.

I was glad to read the other review, as I already have this book with its other name, Pomp and Sustenance. That's a great book, but why do this reselling thing with a different name? I was excited to see this as she is a wonderful writer--but I think I already have it.
