What else could you wish for in a cook book? Great recipes, a cook, an artist’s experience of life, and a glimpse into Italian life seen by the artist, Edward Giobbi, as well as, a doctor’s point of view on nutrition by Richard Wolff, M.D.!
Before we get into this book, here is an illustration from the content of an earlier book Italian Family Cooking by Edward Giobbi.
Looking out the window, I see the locals reading the main newspapers in the cases hanging on a wall outside a local shop, that is what village life is all about. It is about mid-day, my rice has been slow cooking on the burner for a while ready to turn into this delicious recipe below.
It is too bad that the artist’s studio in Katonah was completely destroyed during a storm in 2011 and a lot of work lost but this legacy lives on Ed! The artist won a James Beard Award in 1992 for his culinary excellence. Don’t forget to follow our first link in this post to see some amazing art work by Edward Giobbi.
Buon Appetito to my friends.
