Italian comfort food

Cucina Povera by Pamela Sheldon Johns is Italian comfort food, at its best. In this beautifully-illustrated volume, Johns shares mouth-watering recipes of such Tuscan specialties as Riblillita or Bread Soup, Roasted Chicken with (Wine) Vin Santo Sauce, and simple but delicious pasta with tomato sauce.

Johns shares not only the recipes, but the stories and wisdom of the wonderful Tuscans who shared their favourite dishes with her. 
Cooks will reach for this book often to cook healthful, flavour-filled meals with simple inexpensive ingredients.
Cucina Povera is a perfect holiday gift for Italian food afficionados.
