    DescriptionIn the sumptuous tradition of "Chocolat "and "Captain Corelli's Mandolin," and already optioned for a major motion picture, comes a magical tale of romantic passion, culinary delight--and Italy. Captain James Gould arrives in wartime Naples assigned to discourage marriages between British soldiers and their gorgeous Italian girlfriends. But the innocent young officer is soon distracted by an intoxicating young widow who knows her way around a kitchen...Livia Pertini is creating feasts that stun the senses with their succulence--ruby-colored San Marzana tomatoes, glistening anchovies, and delectable new potatoes encrusted with the black volcanic earth of of Campania--and James is about to learn that his heart may rank higher than his orders. For romance can be born of the sweet and spicy passions of food and love--and time spent in the kitchen can be as joyful and exciting as the banquet of life itself! "From the Hardcover edition."

    Review quote
    "Capella's vividly sensuous command of the arts of both food and romance will attract readers."--"Booklist" "Capella again mingles "amore "with "alimenti "in this tale of a British officer who develops an appetite for all things Italian.... [The author's] prose becomes transcendent when he pours his heart into telling the story of Italian food."--"Kirkus Reviews" "From the Hardcover edition."
