In addition to the recipes themselves, Mary Amabile Palmer, a first- generation Italian American, includes anecdotes about Calabrian culture, history, traditions, and festivals, as well as recollections from her childhood. These delightful snippets provide context to the more than 200 Calabrian dishes detailed in Cucina di Calabria, making the book as much fun to read as it is to cook from. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
"Clabria's cuisine has until now remained in the shadows of Italian cooking, but thanks to Mary Amabile Parker's compilation of recipes that she knows and loves and her infectious enthusiasm for her Calabrian heritage, we can all sample Calabrian fare as it is meant to be." --Mary Ann Esposito, host of "Ciao Italia" on PBS and author of Ciao Italia
