Cooking with Italian Grandmothers features the histories and menus of twelve grandmothers, each of whom welcomed Ms. Theroux into her kitchen and pantry and shared both favorite dishes and personal wisdoms. From the dramatic winter shores of Ustica to the blooming hills of Tuscany in the spring, readers will journey though Italy's most diverse regions and seasons to discover the country's most delectable dishes, from the traditional to the unexpected, and meet the storied women who make them.
