Cooking with Italian Grandmothers: Recipes and Stories from Tuscany to Sicily - Jessica Theroux, Katrina Fried

For anyone who loves to cook traditional Italian, Jessica Theroux’s COOKING WITH ITALIAN GRANDMOTHERS (Welcome Books, $40) is bound to be treasured.  Bringing readers into the homes of twelve women who opened not only their kitchens but their lives, Theroux shares with us the wisdom these women have acquired and the recipes, handed down from their mothers, they have perfected over a lifetime of savoring life and preparing meals.  From Liguria, she describes a meatless lasagna made with home rolled pasta and pesto bechamel.  From Lombardia, the book offers a pumpkin tortelloni with brown butter and sage.  The author spent a year traveling all over Italy to represent the varied regions that constitute Italian cuisine, and the adventure is well chronicled with beautiful photographs and profiles of the amazing women she spent time with.
