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!”
