5.0 out of 5 stars The best Italian Cookbook I have read in years, January 12, 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Cucina & Famiglia: Two Italian Families Share Their Stories, Recipes, And Traditions (Hardcover)
I grew up in an Italian community in Hartford much like the one the Tuccis describe. I was moved to buy this book after seeing Chef Scappin and the Tuccis on a cooking show. Their Manicotti recipe was the same as my grandmother's even though we are Sicilian and they come from Northern Italy!
Dona Concetta made stuffed artichokes for me whenever she knew I was coming home and her recipe is remarkably similar to the one in the book.
I couldn't put down the book. As well as being an excellent cookbook, it is a really interesting view of two fascinating families and their close knit community. The book made me long for the simpler days in my grandfather's garden eating fresh figs and picking tomatoes while the Zias sat and gossiped!
Buy this book, you will love it, particularly if you are of Italian descent.
