Italian cooks books are both wonderful and plentiful..I have quite a few.
It was the personalization of the Italian-American culture and cooking in the Cape Cod and Boston area
that reeled me in . What a great time I have had over the past few weeks discovering the streets, kitchens, garden, and restaurants of those who did the cooking without leaving my home. The book is filled with wonderful moments in a boys life as he came to study and understand not only the cooking of his extended family but the uniqueness that each old timer who seemed eager to share about their life and food experiences with him.
Mr Carafoli came to appreciate the nuances that make their recipes special.His memories explain the connection of the ingredients to the personalities who did the cooking. Call it a history book, a recipe book or a biography..it is all of those and more. I already sent 3 copied to foodie friends...A perfect gift.
Having said all that, this book is so much more than a cookbook, as indicated in all the previous reviews. It is so "from the heart", warm and inspiring. It truly conveys how important food is to fond memories and relationships. The book is also very well-written and an extremely interesting read. I recommend it heartily.
