As a wife, mother, and grandmother, as well as housekeeper and cook for those with special needs, Elisa Costantini has spent her life serving up delicious Italian meals.

Leaving Italy at the age of twenty-three, she moved to Philadelphia with her husband and young daughter. Once there, she established herself in her neighborhood and community as a wonderful neighbor, parishioner, friend...and a terrific cook of homemade Italian specialties.

In her debut cookbook, Costantini collects her tried-and-true recipes for Italian favorites in one place, sharing them with anyone who has an interest in making phenomenal meals for the people they love.

She includes easy-to-follow recipes for all the Italian classics, including antipasto, pasta, breads, pizza, main dishes, and desserts.

And unlike many fussy, complicated recipes that rely on specialized ingredients and techniques, Costantini's rustic, authentic recipes call for only fresh, simple ingredients available at local markets. Her clear writing allows even novice cooks to bring the old-world charm of the Italian countryside to their home dining room tables.

About the Author:

Elisa Costantini was born in 1938 in Poggio Valle, a small town in the province of Teramo, located in the Abruzzo region of Italy. The daughter of farmers, and one of six children, she learned to cook at a very young age using simple, fresh ingredients to create wonderful food for family and friends.

At the age of twenty-three, Costantini immigrated to the United States with her late husband, Francesco, and daughter, Nadia. Once in Philadelphia, she started from scratch, building a family, an endless circle of friends, and a fulfilling career with the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. For more than forty years, she's cared for children with special needs as a housekeeper and cook at Divine Providence Village in Springfield, Pennsylvania.

Costantini wrote this book as a legacy for her children and grandchildren, to preserve her art, and to help home cooks make wonderful meals for loved ones.

Review:

These are the kind of meals that chefs live for, the recipes and flavors that first awakened their love of food. You follow these recipes to create more than a meal, you follow them to recreate memories through flavor. -- Chef Michael Favacchia "Marly's of Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, winner of the Best of Main Line Award."
