Reviews

"part cookery, part storytelling - and wholly beguiling...don't miss it: there won't be a better cookbook published this decade" * Elisabeth Luard, Daily Mail * "a charming story...she unravels the family history like a precious thread...Contini's writing has a naturalness and honesty about it that brings a lump to the throat on occasion. It is full of warmth, love and respect for traditional Italian attitudes to food as the cornerstone of a nurturing family life. A lovely unmissable book." * Sunday Herald * "a really heartwarming book of recollections and recipes, recounted with love and gusto" * Sainsbury's Magazine * "a remarkable book...a pleasure to read as well as to cook from" * Homes & Gardens * "From the barren mountains of Southern Italy to the chilly streets of Edinburgh, this is a joy - both in and out of the kitchen" * Choice Magazine *
