Synopses & Reviews
From her restaurant on Boston's Salem Street, and from her own kitchen, Rose Dante has served countless meals and built a tightly knit community of customers, family, and friends. Her daughter Toni tried to create her own life, outside that circle -- only to return with her own daughter when her marriage failed. Now that her daughter, Vanessa, is nearly grown, Toni must face the bitterness of the past in order to taste the sweetness of the future -- but she can't make such a journey alone. She'll need the guidance of her mother, and of her family. She needs Rose's recipes for happiness, learned by trial and error over sixty years of marriage -- recipes that are sometimes difficult to follow, but like the perfect risotto al limone, are worth the effort.
