Wow! There it is, my very first cookbook. The mythical Il Cucchiao d’argento, the original cooking bible of Italy.
In the back, next to the index, I added a list of recipes that she used to make and that I loved, all carefully handwritten. Yes, many will be in my upcoming cookbook.
What a dizzying journey down my painful and magical memory lane.
Grazie, mamma. I hope I can make you proud.
