I just bought myself a great new one for Christmukkah... "My Love for Naples," by Anna Teresa Callen
. She's the person I always turn to for "Italian advice," and the book is filled with the history of the area, as well as recipes. She lived in Naples from age 12 to young adulthood, and really knows the area well and loves it.
I know, I didn't NEED
another cookbook, least of all Italian, but...
I'm making a baked rice dish from it for a dinner meeting next Monday.
