Philadelphia's Italian Foods: A History of over 200 years with recipes from the City's best Italian cooks by Celeste A. Morello

Historian Celeste A. Morello reveals the development of nearly 300 years of Italian foods in Philadelphia from John Bartram and Benjamin Franklin, through the sandwiches, famous "Italian Market" and alte cucine italiane restaurants that set this city apart from the other eateries in world-class dining.

The recipes—there are more than 100 of them—are from Italian cooks in Philadelphia who used their skills with the health-consciousness of today's lifestyles, including vegetarian.

Some of these chefs cooked for Frank Sinatra, Julia Child, Sylvester Stallone, Rush Limbaugh, the Rolling Stones, past presidents and sports legends, while celebrities of all fields feasted at The Saloon, La Buca, Pat's Steaks, DiLullo's, La Veranda and other places whose chefs gave recipes for this book.
