I think book would have been better with more color pictures and without the hand written recipes. Was hoping for a pizza recipe. Nicely done:)

I'm not sure if you know of me or not, but I have written several
books on Italian Americans. My latest project is "Farms, Factories
and families: Italian american Women of Connecticut," and I had the
good fortune to have interviewed your mother for the book in 2008.

The interview we recorded was quite moving and she spoke at length and
in great detail about her life growing up in northern Italy and her
family's escape from the Germans.

My books (my website is are collections of oral
histories illustrated with photographs of the storytellers, the main
charcters in all my books.

I would very much like to include a photograph of your mother where
her story will appear. (I've alraedy transcribed the interview and
placed it into the text of the book) What would work beautifully with
her narrative would be any photograph of Georgina and her family taken
while in Italy.

If this is something you can help me with, I'm sure it would add
something quite lasting to your mother's legacy.

Thanks, Dan, for designating proceeds to the ALS Association -- the "Nonna" of this book lost her beloved husband died of ALS many years ago, & she worked to raise awareness, funds, & support for other families affected by ALS. She would be so proud, & must be smiling such a big happy smile!! And thank you to BLURB for featuring it!!!!! (written by Zia Lizzie)

A great book indeed.

The layout with the hand written index cards next to the printed recipe is classic.

I recognize recipes from many regions, the Risi e Bisi is classic Venetian, and the Roman-Jewish style artichokes (Carciofi alla Giudia), which she also seems to be holding on the cover, appear to have been prepared with great care.

A credit to your nonna to be sure.
