More than a cook book

by Lori
(Ontario, Canada)

There was a series of books published many years ago and recently re-released under the Title "Culinaria". Each publication specialized in a culture.

Culinaria Italy is filled with recipes and tons of information and pictures about food, all sorted by region. But it is more than just a cook book. It is a beautiful collection of the culture. The images of country, ingredients and people makes me feel connected to my Italian roots and I long to visit the mother land. I have not used it as a cook book but as a reference. I will pick it up from time to time and browse the pages for fun.

My grandmothers ascoli piceno olives are in there and the moment I saw the image of the women preparing them, I knew that this book would be a treasured possession.
