Description:

At the tip of Italy's "boot" lies Calabria. It is a beautiful, mountainous region populated by fishermen and small farmers. Rosetta Costantino grew up in this rugged landscape--her father a shepherd and wine maker and her mother his tireless assistant.

When her family immigrated to California, they re-created a little Calabria on their property, cooking with eggplant, tomatoes, and peppers from their garden, fresh ricotta made from scratch, and pasta fashioned by hand. A frugal people, Calabrians are master preservers, transforming fresh figs into jam, canning fresh tuna in oil, and sun-drying peppers for the winter. Now Rosetta shares her family's story and introduces readers to the fiery simplicity of Calabrian food.

The first cookbook of a little-known region of Italy, My Calabria celebrates the richness of the region's landscape and the allure of its cuisine. This is a cookbook for our time: a reminder of how ingenious and resourceful cooks can create a gorgeous local cuisine.Recipes for easily accessible, fresh-from-the-garden Italian food from a Calabrian native and "bountiful good cook" (The Atlantic).

This book is a joy to cook from. The recipes are clear and ingredients easy to come by for the most part. This is regional Italian at its best. The book reads like a family holiday and history that you've been enthusiastically invited to join.

LOVE this book. I have cooked about 6 or 7 recipes and all are fantastic so far. I don't agree that it's only for the advanced as stated by the previous rating, but it is for someone who is enthusiastic about cooking. I even made the homemade ricotta... you get the idea

Although there are some simple recipes, I recommend this for the more advanced cooks. The book is beautiful to look at and very entailed. If you are Italian, add a star!
