I love Nonna's books! They take me back to visiting my own special "Nonna" in Italy. If I cannot be there in person, this is the next best thing. Once again, the author has compiled a intriguing list of recipes to try, this time with a holiday-related theme. Easy to understand and follow. I'll be spending many pleasurable evenings preparing several of these, and then sitting down with the family to enjoy eating them!

When you visit Nonna make sure you have a healthy appetite because she cooks meals that fill your body and soul. I will definitely be trying one or two of these recipes for a harvest meal or Sunday dinner. I mean tell me how can you not want to try Amaretto Pumpkin Pie or Pumpkin Risotto. there are so many yummy Italian recipes it's hard to choose just a few. This would make a great gift for chefs as the holidays are fast approaching and if they make any in November or December then there are Easter and New Year recipes as well.
