Per La Famiglia Memories and Recipes of Southern Italian Home Cooking - Emily Richards
Per La Famiglia means "for the family" and perfectly sums up this celebration of Southern Italian cooking. Author Emily Richards takes the reader inside the family, a life that revolves around a kitchen overflowing with the smells and tastes of Italian cooking. These recipes have been passed down from generation to generation. Many had never been written down before.
This book has home-cooked Southern Italian food for cooks of all skill levels. There are delicious dishes here - antipastos, homemade sauces, pastas, desserts and cookies - for celebrations of all kinds. Readers will cook their way through classic dishes bursting with rich flavours of the tomatoes, eggplants, olives, herbs, creamy cheeses and breads that make Italian cooking famous the world over.
As any Italian knows, there's no truer expression of love than a home-cooked meal. This book is more than just a collection of delicious recipes; it is also a window into the life of a loving family.
