Writing Ricette di Maria has been a challenging, gratifying & extraordinary experience. I cannot think of a more tangible tribute to the beauty & love that poured from my mother’s hands than a cookbook dedicated to her simple, yet exquisite cooking.
Some of the recipes have been reproduced as close as possible to mom’s original, while others are recipes that combine many of the things she taught me blended with the styles, ideas and cuisines I have been lucky enough to be exposed to while cooking and traveling; but ultimately, they are all Maria’s Recipes!
My mother would be proud to know that I have held close to my heart the traditions of our Italian Heritage, but I also know that she would be excited, as she always was, about my eagerness to experiment and push the envelope a bit.
I truly hope this book makes cooking an enjoyable and educating process; and I hope it makes mommy smile.
