About this title


If your mother had been brought up in an extended Italian family that was passionate about food, and gone on to run one of the country's most successful delicatessens, would you not want a record of all the knowledge and experience she had acquired? This book provides just that, in a form that can be shared with other families and other cooks. Addressing her daughter Francesca, Mary Contini has written not only a wonderful cook book, but also a compelling and often moving account of her family history. Informative, humorous and always passionate, this is a cookbook to read as well as to cook from day after day.

From the Publisher:

In this delightful book, cookbook author Mary Contini tells the story of the Di Ciacca family, tracing their journey from the barren Abruzzi mountains to the chilly streets of postwar Edinburgh. Addressing her daughter Francesca as she embarks on independent life, Contini poignantly recounts her ancestors’ lives in their adopted land, where traditions were kept alive around the dinner table. Blending narrative skill with recipes and recollections, this is one of the most original books for food lovers in recent years. Mary Contini is a partner in Valvona and Crolla, a famous Italian delicatessen in Edinburgh.
