"Much is said about using the very best ingredients to make the very best food, but few can boast having the undisputed queen’s voice in their head when shopping or preparing a dish… Marcella’s blues-singer voice is as clear in this indispensable tome as it was when we shared lunches over the years.

About the Author
Marcella Hazan (1924-2013) was born in Cesenatico, a fishing village on the northern Adriatic shore of Italy. She studied for a career in the sciences and received two doctoral degrees from the University of Ferrara in Emilia-Romagna. In 1955 she married Victor Hazan, an Italian-born American, and moved with him to New York, where she began teaching Italian cooking classes in her apartment. In 1973 she published her first cookbook, The Classic Italian Cook Book, which introduced Americans to authentic Italian food. Her cooking schools in Italy draw students from around the world. Hazan was the recipient of two Lifetime Achievement Awards (from the James Beard Foundation in 2000, and the IACP in 2004) and a knighthood from her own country. She was the author of five additional classic cookbooks and a memoir.
Victor Hazan, Marcella’s lifelong collaborator and writing partner, is an authority on Italian wine and food. He is the author of Italian Wine. He lives in Longboat Key, Florida.

This book offers an approach to creating food, something at once so ethereal, so fleeting, to an experience as old and profound as our history allows.
So read about the reverence for food and its components from an old hand. Learn that, whether you prepare Italian or Japanese or whatever food you eat, that the common thread is your knowledge and abiding honor of the meaning you give to food and that food gives to you.
I have a pretty good working knowledge about ingredients and cooking, having spent a fair amount of time cooking and reading about such things over the years, but, still, there is much to be learned in this book.
I also found this a touching tribute to her by her husband, friend, and partner for sixty years, Victor.
