    Absolute must - esp if your family roots are in southern Italy!

    Fantastic book on several levels.
    Everyone always says the Italians don't eat desserts - just cheese and fruits. Not true from the south. Some of these are ones I kind of remember seeing when I was a kid. The pics are GREAT and the historical information is invaluable. Book is about perfect!!!
