Jean once wrote, "Just as I was about to concede that grandmothers - especially the Italian variety - are an endangered species, along comes this glorious cookbook which, I admit, made me cry. The book is the result of a year chef Jessica Theroux spent cooking, foraging, and eating with Italian grandmothers from Milan to Sicily, learning their secrets and listening to their stories. Bless you, Jessica." (Encore from December 17th, 2010)
Jessica Theroux, Chef and teacher with a holistic bent, author of Cooking with Italian Grandmothers: Recipes and Stories from Tuscany to Sicily.
