About the Author

Oretta Zanini De Vita was born in Bologna, where she learned the art of pasta making as a child in a local convent school. A respected Italian culinary historian, she has written more than forty books on Italian food and its traditions, including the James Beard Award winning Encyclopedia of Pasta (2010) and Popes, Peasants, and Shepherds: Recipes and Lore from Rome and Lazio (2013), both translated by Maureen B. Fant. She lives in Rome.
Maureen B. Fant, a native of New York, is a writer and translator who came to live in Rome in 1979 believing that her future lay in classical archaeology. She now writes mostly about Italian food. She is the coauthor of Women's Life in Greece and Rome and Dictionary of Italian Cuisine, among others. Her writing has appeared in the New York Times, Gourmet, and other periodicals, and she lectures on the food of Rome and ancient Rome.

Reviews

Revelation lies between these covers...This book is as much a fascinating lesson in Italian character as it is generous with dishes rarely tasted beyond their home kitchens.--Lynne Rossetto Kasper, host of American Public Media's The Splendid Table(R)
This book is meant to help those outside of Italy cook like Italians.
Sauces & Shapes could well be the book that retires all other pasta books...The table of contents alone reads like the most tantalizing trattoria menu from which you just can't decide which dish to order.--Danny Meyer, author of Setting the Table
