Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Just added this book to my well used collection of 46 ethnic cookbooks. I thought this book was out of print and was so happy to find it at last. I'd been borrowing it from the library. It's a classic. Ms.Loren is known for being a very good cook and her recipes-- authentic Italian and family recipes-- reflect that. Interspersed are photos and anecdotes from her life. Buy this book while it's still available and you won't regret it.
