This book, which celebrates Italian ethnicity, totals 216 pages and also contains 60 delectable recipes from 29 different chefs who represent some of the best-loved Italian restaurants in the entire St. Louis metropolitan area. Next to each recipe is a fascinating profile of each of the 20 restaurateurs, describing their rags-to-riches stories and their secrets to success. Similar to the first book, the beautiful, full-color photographs of each prepared dish will stimulate the senses. Saint Louis Italians: The Hill and Beyond boasts 80 pages of historical descriptions and a staggering wealth of photographs, which will illuminate the experiences of Italian Americans in the City of St. Louis. Indeed, our urban landscape has been enriched by their home country's cultural heritage, their admirable work ethic, and their devotion to family and community. While telling the stories of men such as Yogi Berra, Joe Garagiola, and football great Tom Lombardo, the book begins by resurrecting the now-gone, once-vibrant neighborhood called Little Italy.

You are going to LOVE this book! This book is filled with really great historical information on the Italian immigrants of Saint Louis, some Italian celebrities, and it also contains a bunch of restaurant profiles. <BR/><BR/>My favorite part is all of the recipes from the actual Italian restaurants in Saint Louis. You're going to love this book! It also makes an excellent coffee table book! Enjoy!
