Synopsis: The recipes are interwoven with anecdotes about Calabrian culture and history (as multi-layered as one of the region's signature dishes, Sagne Chjine, a special lasagna), traditions, festivals, and folklore, and of course, the primary role that food plays in all aspects of Italian life.

From the best-kept secrets of her mother's kitchen to Calabrain family, friends, and local chefs, first-generation Italian American Mary Amabile Palmer has collected the best the region has to offer, thus preserving the past for generations of future cooks.

Review: For centuries, one of Italy's best-kept culinary secrets has been the cooking of Calabria, that region occupying the toe of the Italian boot. But in Cucina di Calabria, Mary Amabile Palmer boldly breaks the silence and introduces an exciting new cuisine to the world. Located just across the Mediterranean from North Africa--not far from Greece and Asia Minor--Calabria has long been the target of invasion and occupation; whatever the political fallout of such incursions, Calabrian cooking is all the richer for the introduction of foreign cuisine and ingredients (olives from the Greeks; eggplants and pine nuts from the Arabs)--that contribute a succulent and daring mélange of taste and texture.

In addition to the recipes themselves, Mary Amabile Palmer, a first- generation Italian American, includes anecdotes about Calabrian culture, history, traditions, and festivals, as well as recollections from her childhood. These delightful snippets provide context to the more than 200 Calabrian dishes detailed in Cucina di Calabria, making the book as much fun to read as it is to cook from.
