Product Overview

The best recipes of two family traditions, by a favorite television actress and talented home cook. No matter how far from home we go, refining our palates, leaving behind family cooking for sophisticated fare, we all have a special place in our hearts--and stomachs--for our families' deliciously basic, home recipes. Born of the culinary traditions of actress Pamela Hensley Vincent's Jewish family and her husband Duke Vincent's Italian background, The Jewish-Sicilian Cookbook recaptures, with charm, and tasty and do-able recipes, the gastronomic nostalgia of two families. The sixty-four recipes run the gamut from typically Jewish (Yetta's Chicken Soup) to quintessentially Italian (Duke's Special Spaghetti), and represent the best of traditional modern American food, radiating a fifties sensibility that goes down as deliciously well today as it did then. The common ground of all family food traditions is "Food is Love," and this principle is irresistibly at play as Pamela Vincent recounts heartfelt anecdotes, describing memories of meals with loved ones. From a predawn breakfast of buttered matzoh and coffee with her grandfather to pasta night with Duke, The Jewish-Sicilian Cookbook will inspire readers to revisit fond food memories of their own as well as create new ones.
