Beyond the Pasta Synopsis~
My new book Beyond The Pasta; Recipes, Language and Life with an Italian Family - a food memoir/cookbook tells of the month I lived in Italy with an Italian family, while taking cooking classes from the grandmother and language lessons from her daughter.
It is a warm, heartfelt, witty and humorous story...a delicious one, too, since it includes 29 authentic Italian recipes Nonna (the grandmother) shared with me. The book delves into food memoir subject matter not typically found in a cookbook ... It was the day-to-day living, befuddled social interactions, laughing and shopping with Nonna, exploring the countryside and le gelaterie, where I truly developed my language skills, and a new, more joyful and uniquely Italian way of looking at the world.
If you have ever wondered about traveling to a foreign country and living there - this book tells of what a life altering experience it can be. And it will make you hungry, too!
Buon Appetito e Ciao~
