"More Than Meatballs is the perfect book about a pretty darn perfect food. Michele Anna Jordan once again gets to the heart of a beloved and delicious tradition of food and cookery in useful and enlightening ways. She offers more proof that one of the greatest treasures of farm country is a writer who can translate the better bits of life for everyone, who can stay up to date with the great wide world while wandering out in the fields and farms.

"As with all great cookbooks, More Than Meatballs is more than the sum of its parts. Michele gives valuable common sense advice about everything from how to hold a knife to where to get good meat. And if this book helps bring back the use of caul fat she will be my hero for life!

"But most of all, this is a truly delicious and smart collection of rock solid (but appropriately tender) recipes - from someone I trust, and some other food friends I love and admire - that makes me think I could just possibly live a lifetime on nothing but meatballs . . . with salad and fruit, of course. Oh, and ice cream. But really, I'm in Meatball Heaven. And you will be too. Buy this book and extra copies for anyone for whom you have even the slightest degree of fondness."

"More Than Meatballs: From Arancini to Zucchini fritters and Everything in Between provides over fifty recipes that take the meatball theme and expand upon it. While those who somehow still expect the result will be meatball-oriented meat dishes (despite the subtitle's warning) may be disappointed, there are plenty of meatball cookbooks on the market right now - and few holding the wider vision of the idea than this. Dishes come from around the world and feature all kinds of ball-shaped dishes from appetizers to main courses, non-meat balls for soups, salads and pasta, and fritter-type arrangements made with carrots and other vegetables. Liza Gershman's color photos throughout lend to a survey of mouth-watering themes based on meatballs. What's in a meatball? That which is called by any other name makes for a different approach that broadens not only the definition of meatballs, but their uses - and that's what makes More Than Meatballs more substantial than most of its competitors." --Midwest Book Review
