Pasta Popes and Passion by Vilma Sozio Gallo
Pasta Popes and Passion is a travel through time, treasures and tastes of more than 50 years offering a glimpse into Italian life seen through the eyes of an American woman. This itinerary was meant to be brief and yet lasted over 50 years. She offers her readers the chance to share in her lifelong joys and loves through first hand, unusual experiences or anecdotes that the usual tourist and lover of Italy rarely experience. Cooking, food, tastes are mere steps en route; recipes convey culture, color and meaning to Vilma's extended stay in her magical adopted country. Does she succeed in sharing her hidden, Italian treasures? Is this a memoir of an expatriate or a cookbook of authentic, sometimes unknown dishes that have yet to travel the ocean? You decide.
