Item Description...

"Filled with family pictures and genealogical information, it is a delightful little book. . . sure to appeal to those interested in history and in local traditional Italian food." -Baton Rouge Advocate

"A little bit Louisiana, and little bit Italian and all local, Wilson's stories and recipes are a generous record of a special community."-Claudia Kousoulas, Chow Line newsletter, Culinary Historians of Washington, D.C.

For over three decades, Nancy Wilson collected anecdotes and recipes from Louisiana's Italian immigrants, including her family and friends, as a way to preserve her children's Italian heritage. Included here alongside lively personal commentary are historical and cultural facts about Italian American immigration patterns, religious institutions and festivals such as St. Joseph's Day, and over one hundred recipes from "the old country."

This collectable volume will appeal as much to cultural historians as to those seeking their Italian grandmother's fava bruschetta instructions. Recipes include Mama's Italian Bread, eggplant casserole, olive salad, Aunt Lena's Ricotta, rosary cake, osso bucco, St. Joseph's Day breadcrumbs, and more. Wilson also includes a glossary and an illustrated how-to for making your own mud oven to bake authentic Italian bread.

The down-to-earth voices collected in Louisiana's Italians, Food, and Folkways make this an interesting blend of personal and public history and a delicious celebration of the Italian's love of God, food, and family.

Just like home  Aug 13, 2008
I stumbled over this book while on a short trip to Louisiana during the Christmas season a couple of years ago. I had been baking some cookies and as I flipped though the pages I came to a recipe (sesame seed cookies) that wasn't just close, it was exactly the same as the one I'd just baked. I turned to a few more recipes and found more and more of them them that seemed like the same as the ones I'd been using for years. I had to buy it. When I got it home and started reading it I noticed and even that not only the recipes but also the names or people in the stories were similar to some of those in my family. This was spooky. It was as if there was an entire group of people with exactly the same heritage, traditions, culture, recipes, etc.

If you are from the western New York area and you neglected to collect your grandmothers' recipes, fear not. This book is your answer.

The recipes work. You need to be careful with then as some of the yields are huge. There are a few errors but for the most part this book is a treasure trove of classic Sicilian-American recipes.
Wonderful book  Jun 11, 2007
I purchased this book recently at a bookstore in Baton Rouge, LA. I am originally from New Orleans and relocated to TX after Katrina. I am of Italian descent and was saddened when I lost several family recipes in the floodwaters. Reading Nancy's book was like going into a time capsule for me. She gives a wonderful history of the Sicilians coming to Southern Louisiana, followed by several wonderful recipes that she has collected. It brings back some really great memories for me, especially the discussions of the St Joseph's altars. After the storm I found I have become quite reminiscent of the past, so buying Nancy's book was a no-brainer for me.

For those outside of the Southern Louisiana area, I recommend this book to you as well. There are some really good recipes in there!!!! It is definitely authentic Sicilian if that is what you are looking for.
