With advice from nonnas all over the country, this unique book covers holiday classics from every region of Italy, from Milan to Sicily, and includes holiday memories from the nonnas themselves. The nonnas also give their personal tips on cooking for a crowd (and it's always a crowd). And, of course, no new Cooking with Nonna cookbook would be complete without Rossella's signature dishes and unique voice.
Rosella and her nonnas will have you enjoying Italian culinary delights around the year. In addition to the major holidays of Christmas, Easter, and Thanksgiving, you will find recipes for New Year’s Eve and Day, the Epiphany, Little Easter, St. Joseph’s Day, Carnevale, All Souls Day, Valentine’s Day, Women’s Day, Mother’s Day, and Saint Rocco's Feast. To complete you year-round Italian tasting tour, recipes for weddings and other celebrations are included.
Nothing brings family together like delicious food around the holidays, and Cooking with Nonna: A Year of Italian Holidays has everything you need to keep your family full and happy every holiday of the year. Bring the dishes and the memories you grew up with to a whole new generation of Italian Americans!
|A fabulous book from the beginning to the end. Not only are the recipes wonderful, but the stories that are shared are a very nice addition as well. The beginning of the book with the pickled vegetables was always on our table but we always bought it, now with a recipe I will try to make it myself. Some of the recipes I already make some of the food from this book because my family is Italian, but it is always interesting in seeing the different recipes plus new ones. Here in this book, they take you through every holiday including some of the saint days as well. I really liked the recipes for cannoli cookies, waffles cookies, and cucciddati, (fig cookies). Also, their minestrone soup had more ingredients than the one my family made. There was also a recipe for sweet coal January 6, which really does look like coal. I thought that was very fascinating and had never seen that before. You get everything from pasta to fish and even a roast and turkey recipes, along with many desserts. The pictures were very good, and overall this was a very good cookbook. Worth for anyone to purchase it. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 5 stars.
