Bellman's (America's Great Delis) bittersweet celebration of Italian-American communities in the U.S. charts the roots and endurance of Italian-American traditions. Bellman surveys the immigrant experience during distinct waves in the 19th and early 20th centuries; spotlights Italian-Americans in industry, politics, and entertainment; and notes regional differences and the ways they influenced settlement... In chapters devoted to 15 Italian-American enclaves, Bellman profiles family-owned restaurants, cafes, markets, and bakeries... Anchoring Bellman's identification of the Italian-American experience with food are signature recipes from famed establishments. Although the fate of America's Little Italys is insecure, this trove preserves their legacies. --PW Weekly
This book is about so much more than recipes and traditions! The perfect gift for anyone who has ever had a favorite pizza parlor or spumoni counter or capocollo provender, America's Little Italys is bound to elicit heartwarming memories and culinary daydreams. --InItaly.com

I thought this was an interesting book even though I'm not Italian, and I found several good recipes to try including Chicken Parmesan from Alleva Dairy in New York City, and a pizza dough recipe from Tony Nitti's Bar-B-Que in Chicago. History buffs and cooks who enjoy Italian food will like this book.
of the Recipe. . Boy does that help in time and doing the recipe right with all the side remarks. I must confess however that the Little Italy's around the world succeed to the fullest. . My only problem is that with about 200
Italian Recipes, I have not had time to try these recipes out. . I will give my rating when I have time to open up the book and try the recipes. .
