From the PublisherChristopher Buckley author of No Way to Treat a First Lady Rosemary and Bitter Oranges is the most delicious, soul-satisfying meal I've had in a very long time. It is to Italian food what the madeleine was to Proust.
Giuliano Hazan Author of Every Night Italian What a wonderful and beautifully written book is Patrizia Chen's Rosemary and Bitter Oranges! The vignettes she paints are so vivid and true they remind me of many similar experiences in my childhood. Her description of Emilia's negotiating skills at Livorno's food market is just perfect. This is a book I will treasure.
Michael and Ariane Batterberry Founders of Food Arts and Food & Wine In Rosemary and Bitter Oranges, Patrizia Chen makes us a gift of her Mediterranean upbringing. Such is the power of her conjurings in this memoir-cookbook that readers of whatever nationality will be transformed into naturalized citizens of the Tuscan table. A stirring performance in every sense.
Mauro Maccioni Co-owner of Osteria del Circo and Le Cirque With grace, charm, and wit, Patrizia Chen takes readers to an Italy that no longer exists, an Italy you can taste through Chen's masterful rendering in Rosemary and Bitter Oranges.
Patricia Volk Author of Stuffed Patrizia Chen does the impossible. She makes you experience her childhood. I loved Rosemary and Bitter Oranges. It's as fresh as zabaione.
