With this enchanting book, cooking teacher Rosetta Costantino offers a tour of her native Calabria, the rugged, mountainous region at the toe of Italy’s boot. She serves up charming stories along with 150 recipes for the region’s rustic fare. Calabrian Sweet Pepper Fritters, Pasta with Spicy Lamb Ragù, Chicken Soup with Ricotta Dumplings, and a bounty of traditional preserves are just a few of the delectables included in this beautifully photographed and well-researched tribute to Calabria’s hard-working farmers, fishermen, winemakers, shepherds, and cooks.

    Why Five Stars? I really like this book.

    I like Italian food - real Italian food; not the stuff you get in the culinary tourist traps of Italy.

    This book contains "real", traditional Italian food - the food of the Calabria region - the arch and toe of the boot.

    The author opens up with stories of family and about life as it was in Calabria during her youth. The recipes are mostly simple, and they all work - I've tried them all.
