With life in Italy becoming increasingly urbanized and Americanized, le nonne (Italian for the grandmothers) are the last generation that knows the rich traditions and unique dishes of the countrys towns, valleys and hilltops. Carol Field goesMoreWith life in Italy becoming increasingly urbanized and Americanized, le nonne (Italian for the grandmothers) are the last generation that knows the rich traditions and unique dishes of the countrys towns, valleys and hilltops. Carol Field goes trolling through Italys back roads to find these true guardians of the Italian culinary heritage, and weaves their stories, wisdom and dishes together in a wonderful cookbook that celebrates their history and preserves their timeless wisdom. In these pages are the authentic meals enjoyed by generations of Italians. There are savory breads such as Gnocco Ingrassato (made with crunchy cubes of pancetta), such fruit preserves as Le Pesche dEstate (peaches in lemon and sugar syrup), sumptuous sauces like Salsa Piccante alla Senape (spicy mustard) and mouthwatering meat dishes like Agnello in Umido (braised lamb with green olives). And whats a meal without dessert? Tempting fare like Crema Bacchica (literally, Bacchuss pudding -- a cinnamon-and-clove-scented pudding flavored with wine) and Torta di Mandorle e Cioccolata (chocolate almond tart) will elicit heartfelt cheers of magnifico from grateful gourmets.
