Bitter Almonds: Recollections and Recipes From a Sicilian Girlhood Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the style of Mary Contini's "Dear Francesca", this book is part-memoir and includes a collection of 50 Sicilian recipes. Maria Grammatico grew up in an impoverished Sicilian orphanage in the 1950s, where she learned to make the kind of delicacies that she now sells in her successful paticceria in Erice. Illustrated with drawings and photos.

Synopsis:

In the early 50s, Maria Grammatico and her sister were sent by their impoverished mother to live in a convent in Erice, on the western coast of Sicily. Leaving at 22, Maria had nothing to show for her hard life there except the ability to make the cakes and delicacies she has made her life's work.
