Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Best Cook in Boston's North End."
--The Boston Herald


"Marguerite's ravioli is so well known in this historically Italian neighborhood of Boston that the recipe itself has become something of a culinary celebrity."
--Yankee magazine

From the Back Cover

Think of Boston’s North End and you think of great food. Italian markets filled with strings of thick sausage, great wheels of cheese, bushels of seafood, slabs of dark chocolate, and mounds of fresh fruits and vegetables line the streets. For generations, the cooks of this Italian-American neighborhood have transformed these wonderful ingredients into memorable meals.
Now Marguerite DiMino Buonopane, one of the North End’s most celebrated cooks, shows you how to create culinary magic in your own kitchen. With more than twenty new recipes, evocative photos from the North End, and engaging anecdotes, this all-new fifth edition of a cookbook classic (more than 150,000 copies in print) is certain to become a treasured addition to your collection.

Marguerite DiMino Buonopane is a former restaurant chef-owner and host of the legendary luncheons at the old North End Union, a nonprofit community settlement house. For thirty years she taught cooking classes in the North End. She currently writes a newspaper column, “Table Talk.”

Let me just say you will be amazed at the recipe's that are in this book. I know I was. Remember Mom's cooking and Grandma's cooking? How you begged them for the recipe and how they would never give the recipes or omit some of the ingredients so it would never quite taste the same? How many of those recipes have gone to the grave with them? Well they are in this book and you can enjoy them again and again!

I found this book under the title of the North End Union Italian Cookbook. This is the revised version. I am of Italian heritage, and found the recipes to be just like my nonna and mother made. The recipes are easy, delicious, andd truly Italian. A must for anyone wanting to cook traditional Italian food from antipasto to biscotti.

I hesitated to order since I have so many Italian cookbooks. This is a must have! Growing up in NY lots of recipes in here you loved especially from your Italian grandparents & didn't know what went in it or forgot about until you see the recipes.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this book! I'm half Italian and I grew up outside of Boston. My Dad stumbled across this book and I had to buy him a new one. I stole his original copy and it's covered w/ splotches from all of the good things I've cooked. The recipes are authentic and very easy to make. I'd recommend it to anyone.

What a delight, finding a cookbook with everything my mother cooked but I didn't ask for the how to's. I've tried many many of these recipes and they were great. My mom threw in a bit of this a pinch of that a palm.. of this other but I never wrote them down. Now I know quantities for many many of mom's dishes. Thanks Marguertie
