From the Publisher:
Beloved teacher and bestselling cookbook author Marcella Hazan tells how a young girl raised in Emilia-Romagna became America's godmother of Italian cooking || Widely credited with introducing proper Italian food to the English-speaking world, Marcella Hazan is as authentic as they come. Raised in Cesenatico, a quiet fishing town on the northern Adriatic Sea, she's eventually have her own cooking schools in New York, Bologna, and Venice and teach students from around the world to appreciate and produce the food that native Italians eat. She'd write bestselling and award-winning cookbooks, collect invitations to cook at top restaurants, and have thousands of loyal students and readers. || When Marcella met the love of her life, Victor, they married and moved to New York City. She knew not a word of English or-what's more surprising-a single recipe. She longed for the flavors of her homeland and attempted to re-create them. One day Craig Claiborne invited himself to lunch, and the rest is history. || Amarcord means "I remember" in Marcella's native Romagnolo dialect. In these pages, Marcella looks back on the adventures of a life lived for pleasure and a love of teaching. Throughout, she entertains the reader with stories of the twists and turns that brought her love, fame and a chance to change the way we eat forever.
Marcella Hazan came from a cooking family but she herself began as a biologist, with a doctorate from the University of Ferrara. She was working as a researcher on gum disease when she married Victor Hazan, an American businessman, and moved to New York City in 1955. Then she taught herself to cook, and soon she was giving lessons at her apartment. In 1973, her influential CLASSIC ITALIAN COOKBOOK was published, and essentially began the vogue for all things Italian in American cuisine. She has since written many other cookbooks, with her husband, a wine expert, as her collaborator; her son Giulio is also a cookbook writer. Hazan has lived in Venice, New York, and Florida, where she and her husband retired. She has never been a food snob, merely a believer in simple ingredients and techniques; she claims that she loves, for example, good hot dogs and good corn on the cob--but usually has to cook them herself in order to get them.
