Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Zia Donatella comes to live with the Bertolizzi family, little do Alfie and his older sister Emilia know what's in store for them. Zia Donatella is determined to show the kids how a home-cooked meal is better than even the best take-out pizza or burrito. And when Zia's plan actually transports Alfie and Emilia to famous food cities around the world, they learn first-hand how food cannot only take you places but can also bring you back home.

In the third book in the series, Zia's secret ingredient takes Alfie and Emilia to the other side of the world - Hong Kong! Ying and her family are convinced that Alfie and Emilia are the foreign exchange students scheduled to visit them, and the siblings soon find themselves helping out with the opening of the family's new restaurant. Between shopping at the markets, assisting in the kitchen, and trying to get back home, Alfie and Emilia discover the sights and sounds of the exotic and bustling city.

Review:

"With a dash of magic, a pinch of Auntie Mame, and a love for food and history, celebrity chef De Laurentiis begins her Recipe for Adventure series introducing the flavors of the world. Naples, Italy, is the first stop for siblings Alfie and Emilia, 11 and 12, who are magically transported to the city while listening to their visiting great-aunt Zia Donatella's stories of her childhood home — and eating her homemade zeppole, which have a secret ingredient. On the streets of Naples, the children meet a boy shopping for the ingredients that will help his family's trattoria win the local pizza festival. Information about basil, San Marzano tomatoes, and mozzarella di bufala is stirred into the kids' scavenger hunt — like chase through the city. Back at home, Alfie and Emilia gain new appreciation for homemade pizza rather than their usual takeout. Gambatesa's perky spot illustrations keep pace with the action, as De Laurentiis sprinkles Italian words and phrases throughout the story. An author's note and recipe cards for pizza and zeppole are included. A second volume, Paris! is simultaneously available. Ages 7 — 11 (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
