Price: $7.70
Part memoir, part cookbook, Si Mangia! Memories, Lessons and Recipes from Italian Immigrant Life is a precious memento that captures the heart of a culture whose values of simplicity, gratitude and community are shared in heartwarming and humorous stories of growing up in an Italian immigrant family. In an effort to document age old traditions which are now in danger of disappearing, in Si Mangia! you will also find the process of making homemade wine, preserved meats and tomato sauce, as well as original Calabrese recipes such as Melanzane Ripiene (Stuffed Eggplants), “A Chi-na” (Bread and Cocoa Torte) and Rigatoni al Forno (Oven Baked Rigatoni Pasta) which were verbally handed down for generations. Si Mangia! is a treasure to share for generations to come.

    I was drawn to Luciana’s cookbook in an age when everything is digital, because it has an air of history and personal story to it that most cookbooks don’t. I tried the eggplant parmesan recipe, as well as the Tiramisu, and I have given the cookbook to two family members: my ex-husband (who was raised by Italian and Maltese immigrants), and my son (who has Italian and Maltese blood, and who adores Italian food). Both are enjoying the exploration of the recipes and stories therein, giving one the opportunity to recall the anecdotes that he lived as a child in a similar household, and the other the opportunity to learn of old traditions as they were brought into a new world. I found this to be much more than a cookbook. I enjoyed this book because of its approach to the process of cooking, its meaning for family strength and a sense of belonging. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to understand the Italian mindset around food, the kitchen and the cooking process of Italian food... More > as a type of comforting therapy! Lisa P.
