EZ Italian Cooking; an extraordinary collection of mouth-watering hard to find old world Italian specialty recipes. Delicious recipes with origins from the Basalicata region of Italy. It is a sad fact of life and evolution that many things including foods that were once the mainstay and enjoyed by family elders are slipping unintentionally into oblivion. Never again will they be enjoyed and used unless, we the keepers of the past take the time to present and preserve their memories as well as we remember them to be in books such as this. I have fond memories of those days long past and have tried to pass to my children the importance of family and the times we shared and enjoyed together. Today the phrase that is most commonly used is bonding. When I was growing up it was only natural for our family to sit together around the kitchen table to eat dinner and enjoy the meal that Mom had spent all day cooking for us, we would talk to each other without the disruption of a loud TV in the background or someones cell phone ringing or someone paying attention to a new text message they just received. Well my friends their is nothing that I can think of that is more bonding or more wonderful than sitting with your loved ones enjoying each other and a great dinner together. NOTE: The recipes in this book EZ Italian Cooking are the same as those written in my Italian recipe book titled "The Way It Was'. "Old World Recipes For New World Cooks". This smaller edition is without photos and commentary of days gone by.


The Wine Savant

Today’s dynamic wine culture calls for a different kind of wine book. The Wine Savant is just that: punchy, polemical, and brimming with insights to educate and entertain beginning wine drinkers and seasoned oenophiles alike.

Never has the wine world had so much to offer, and never have smart decisions about value, quality, grape, and season been so difficult to make. In The Wine Savant, Michael Steinberger tramps through the world of contemporary wine—from three-buck Chuck and bucket-list Bordeaux to bottle speculators and biodynamic wineries—to give the inside scoop on the key concerns facing the new generation of wine lovers:

  • Why is California suddenly cool again?
  • What’s really the difference between a 95-point wine and a 94-point wine?
  • Why is Burgundy ascendant and Bordeaux suddenly so passé?
  • What’s a biodynamic wine, what’s a natural wine, and should you care?
  • Do food and wine pairings still matter?
Featuring expert buying guides—including the New Kings of California and the World’s Great $25-and-Under Bottles—and tips on tough-to-pair cuisines like Indian and Japanese, The Wine Savant is the perfect guide to today’s often-bewildering realm of choice: ferociously opinionated and committed body and soul to enjoying every glass.
