In Nonna's Kitchen

by Carol Field


California-born Field wrote extensively on Italian food (she was best known for her book ‘The Italian Baker’). ‘In Nonna’s Kitchen’ is a well-researched set of interviews and recipes with perhaps the last generation of Italian women to have passed down traditional regional recipes. Beautifully written, rich with food and folklore, and with recipes that reward the time spent.

Every Italian grandmother in this book is a star and the torta della nonna is fabulous.
