This cookbook fetes the celebrations and foods of an Italian-Canadian through the years by writing down family recipes that can be shared with generations to come. While many are traditional, there are also new spins on some to fit the demands of younger generations without missing the love and stories that go into each dish.
Italians celebrate with food for their family. Often the food is thought of before the guests and it is those moments of creation that these celebrations are remembered for.
Each home has different recipes but many generations have never had the opportunity to write down what their nonnas, mamas or zias have made to share with their families. This cookbook links to the past while keeping in mind future meals shared with family and friends.
Each recipe tells a story while sharing a recipe that is easy to follow and includes photographs that will showcase the beauty in the food and inspire you to create it for yourself. Whether you are a descendant of an Italian family or love Italian food this book will speak to your heart and stomach and allow you to enjoy the flavors of Southern Italian food right in your home.
