"Teresa Lust has lived just about everywhere you've dreamed of living one day, and she is generous enough to walk you through each of those places. Come for the real Italian breadstick recipe, stay for the super regional alcoholic Italian desserts."-- "Delish (Named One Of The 7 Most Anticipated Cookbooks Of 2020)"
"A satisfying celebration of Italian food and family, complete with delectable recipes."-- "Publishers Weekly"
In a knowledgeable, robust narrative that emphasizes proud traditions, Lust chronicles her trips of discovery to Italy's backcountry. Lust hits all the right notes; she demonstrates abundant love and respect for the food and the people dedicated to making it right. An exploratory, celebratory memoir that elevates family repasts.-- "Kirkus Reviews"

"Delightful reading."-- "Booklist"
