This book is a novel and original collection of essays on Italians and food. Food culture is central both to the way Italians perceive their national identity and to the consolidation of Italianicity in global context. More broadly, being so heavily symbolically charged, Italian foodways are an excellent vantage point from which to explore consumption and identity in the context of the commodity chain, and the global/local dialectic. The contributions from distinguished experts cover a range of topics including food and consumer practices in Italy, cultural intermediators and foodstuff narratives, traditions of production and regional variation in Italian foodways, and representation of Italianicity through food in old and new media. Although rooted in sociology, Italians and Food draws on literature from history, anthropology, semiotics and media studies, and will be of great interest to students and scholars of food studies, consumer culture, cultural sociology, and contemporary Italian studies.

A collection of authentic Italian family recipes from the Season 4 winner of MasterChef! Most of Italian chef Luca Manfe’s early memories, especially of family holidays, revolve around food. Passed down from his nonnas, these recipes reflect the warm, rustic flavors of Friuli, Italy: rich frico, risotto, and savory polenta. Also showcased are the lighter bites that pair perfectly with a glass of wine: crostini with ricotta and honey, or a tramezzini, the Italian version of English high-tea sandwiches. Standout desserts include the tiramisu he made with his mother when he was eight years old and his now-famous basil panna cotta that helped win him the title of MasterChef. “I love to teach,” says Manfe, “I’ll show you the fundamentals of fantastic Italian food, including homemade stock (I swear, it’s easy), pasta from scratch, and more. My Italian Kitchen is packed with the food that I love and that you and your family will love too.”

Mo Rocca, host of "My Grandmother's Ravioli" says: "When life gives you lemons, make limoncello! Not My Mother's Kitchen is a funny, loving, and oh so useful manual on food, family and survival when your mom is a terrible cook." Serving up a tale that is part memoir and part cookbook, acclaimed foodie Rob Chirico shares his culinary journey after growing up with an Italian-American mother who was hopeless in the kitchen. Rob Chirico learned to cook as a defense against his mother’s awful meals. After discover-ing that there was more to real food than canned ravioli and frozen vegetables, he decided to try his hand in the kitchen. His memoir offers recipes, cooking techniques, and tips he has cultivated over decades. He blends his expert experience with an engaging and humorous narrative on growing up with suspect meals. "I was howling with laughter and shedding tears of nostalgia at the sensitive portraits of family and culture of the times." -- Linda Pelaccio, Culinary Historian and host of "A Taste of the Past" "... no mere cookbook. It is a personal story that lovingly and humorously describes the author's culinary coming of age. It is a family's history and it also is American cultural history..." -- Michael Stern, author of Roadfood, Chili Nation, American Gourmet “A heartwarming story of growing up in an Italian-American household where there was no dearth of love, but not much in the way of good food. Thrown in for good measure are plenty of recipes, cook’s tips, and historical anecdotes. It’s a keeper.” —Julia della Croce, writer, journalist, and cookbook author From the Hardcover edition.

In Mia Noona Mia Momma and Me Robert L. Caslen, Sr. sets out to describe his life growing up with parents and relatives utilizing the wonderful occasions where family and friends appreciated and loved one another using food as the medicine of togetherness. The center of this family history is the "table." Caslen is a food connoisseur of his own making and necessity. He became interested in food preparation at age of ten when he watched his Noona Contino and Mother Rose cooked meals for their families. He dabbled with meal preparation while teacher and school principal serving "hot lunches." In 1968, Caslen and his wife purchased an Inn at the Jay Peak ski area located in Jay, Vermont. Their chef quit during their second season thus making Roberto the "cook." Many errors occurred and much was learned. He later took the position of Food and Beverage Manager of the Jay Peak Ski Area. They sold the Inn twelve years later and located in Mashpee, Massachusetts in Cape Cod. They opened a small cafe called Roberto's Quiche & Chowder House and the restaurant at the Falmouth Playhouse. The Quiche House won the Best Chowder contest held annually in Hayannis, Massachusetts. Roberto was selected to become a member of the Escoffier Society of Boston. Mia Noona Mia Momma features 200 recipes with an strong emphasis on Italian cooking. Many of the recipes are based on old family recipes. Many others have been adapted or devised by Caslen during his long cooking career.
