Publisher Comments:

Here is authentic Italian home-cooking at its best. Elodia Rigante, a seventy-nine-year-old second-generation Italian-American, was raised in New York's "Little Italy", and she is a virtuoso cook of traditional Italian fare. In Italian Immigrant Cooking — the first in our Immigrant Cookbook series — Elodia not only shares her prized recipes but also evokes the spirit behind her cooking. She invites us into her home to meet her family, giving us a taste of the old Italy that her parents brought to the New World at the turn of the century. She reveals her culinary secrets, too, including a crucial ingredient: the "hand of the cook", which makes cooking truly great.

In the preface, Aniello Panico, Elodia's son, brings together the food and the people of a bygone era. His memories and anecdotes make this book a treasure of cooking and history.
