Teresa Moretti learned to cook from her grandfather. He was a talented natural chef having no formal education. Trial and error were his teachers and he passed everything he learned down to his granddaughter, whom he adored. Teresa inherited many of his natural abilities and over the years has become an avid home cook. Teresa's passion to pass on her knowledge to future generations is what prompted her to begin writing down the simple and classic recipes contained in her books. Since the cuisines of Northern and Southern Italy have their own unique flavors and methods, it became clear that two books would be needed to begin to cover both topics. Teresa's love of cooking covers all ethnicities. She plans to write more cookbooks in the near future. Keep an eye out for them. She hopes that beginners and experienced cooks alike will use her books as staples in their kitchens and that they will remain favorites for years to come.
