About the Author
Praise For Cooking with My Sisters: One Hundred Years of Family Recipes, from Bari to Big Stone Gap…
“Cooking with My Sisters is the best Italian cookbook ever written by women from the American south. Adriana Trigiani and her sisters had the genius to unite a Southern sensibility with Italian cooking, and the stories of the Trigiani family alone are worth the price of admission.”
