EZ Italian Cooking; an extraordinary collection of mouth-watering hard to find old world Italian specialty recipes. Delicious recipes with origins from the Basalicata region of Italy. It is a sad fact of life and evolution that many things including foods that were once the mainstay and enjoyed by family elders are slipping unintentionally into oblivion. Never again will they be enjoyed and used unless, we the keepers of the past take the time to present and preserve their memories as well as we remember them to be in books such as this. I have fond memories of those days long past and have tried to pass to my children the importance of family and the times we shared and enjoyed together. Today the phrase that is most commonly used is bonding. When I was growing up it was only natural for our family to sit together around the kitchen table to eat dinner and enjoy the meal that Mom had spent all day cooking for us, we would talk to each other without the disruption of a loud TV in the background or someones cell phone ringing or someone paying attention to a new text message they just received. Well my friends their is nothing that I can think of that is more bonding or more wonderful than sitting with your loved ones enjoying each other and a great dinner together. NOTE: The recipes in this book EZ Italian Cooking are the same as those written in my Italian recipe book titled "The Way It Was'. "Old World Recipes For New World Cooks". This smaller edition is without photos and commentary of days gone by.
"Regional Cuisine in Medieval Europe" explores the regional and interregional influences on food production and consumption during the Middle Ages. Expert food historians provide detailed histories of the creation and development of particular delicacies in six regions of medieval Europe-Britain, France, Italy, Sicily, Spain, and the Low Countries.
