Read the book Pat Conroy called “the best Italian cookbook ever written by women from the American South,” now revised and updated with even more mouthwatering recipes and photographs.

Cooking with My Sisters, by New York Times bestselling author Adriana Trigiani and her sister Mary Yolanda Trigiani, gives you a seat at the Trigiani and Bonicelli family tables.  Featuring over eighty family recipes, some more than 150 years old, from Bari, the Veneto, the Italian Alps and their American hometown Big Stone Gap, Virginia, accompanied by family stories told with heart and gusto, Cooking with My Sisters is a book to treasure.

This warm, engaging, and easy-to-follow book will introduce both new and seasoned cooks to dishes including Penne Alla Roseto, Happy IBM (Italian-by-Marriage) Husband Salad, and the Tipsy Lady from Flicksville’s Ice Box Cake, all the while sharing stories and insights from family members like Grandmom Viola Trigiani, who was known to write her recipes in code to guard her culinary secrets closely, and Grandma Lucy Bonicelli, a soft-spoken woman who believed the dinner table was a respite and not a place to argue.

Cooking with My Sisters will inspire readers to try delectable, memorable dishes as they peer into the window of a home where the kitchen table was the center of the action, guests became family, and relationships were celebrated. As Rachael Ray says, “This collection fills the heart as full as the stomach! Mangia, y’all!”
