“Melissa shares her lifelong passion for Sicilian food, through firsthand narrative loaded with recipes and beautiful photographs, giving us an insider’s view of this magical island.”
—Mike Colameco, host of Mike Colameco’s Real Food
“Melissa’s book is like poetry to me. Her attachment and sense of belonging to her land and its heritage is palpable in every paragraph, captured in each picture, and summed up in a beautiful and delicious story. We share that bittersweet melancholy for our Italian land that is at the origin of our passionate work: being able to tell these stories is a privilege and an honor, and Melissa has done an impeccable job at it.”
—Gabriele Corcos, New York Times bestselling coauthor of Extra Virgin: Recipes and Love from Our Tuscan Kitchen
“Just about everything I’ve come to know and love about Sicilian food, wine, history, and culture is thanks to Melissa Muller. Now, with this captivating book, Melissa can share her ardor and wisdom about Sicily with the wider world of readers, cooks, and diners. Sicily: The Cookbook is a definitive work of culinary brilliance, family lore, and narrative writing. It announces the arrival of a new generation’s M.F.K. Fisher or Alice Waters.”
—Samuel G. Freedman, author of Letters to a Young Journalist and professor at Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism
"Sicily is a center of fusion cuisine — spicing traditional Italian recipes with flair from elsewhere in the Mediterranean. Here Melissa Muller funnels summers spent visiting her grandparents on the island into recipes for antipasti, fish, meat and dessert in language even novice cooks can understand. It feels like learning family recipes in her grandparents’ kitchen. Her text also offers tips on finding great produce and attending festivals if you plan to visit."

I think Melissa did a wonderful job on putting together this book, pages full of delightful Sicilian goodies. It is a handsomely produced and good-looking book showcasing excellent traditional Sicilian foods. It will be a pleasure to try some of these recipes. These types of books are usually very successful today. And this one I am sure is especially a big hit because it is so well put together and has the right blend of personal and usefulness. It is a little jewel of a cookbook. Frank D.
part history lesson, poem and love letter to Sicily. Makes a great gift for any occasion as cookbook, coffee table book, or both.
