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.'

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.
