The ever-popular Adriana Trigiani is the author of sixteen bestsellers, including the blockbuster epic The Shoemaker’s Wife. Adriana also wrote and directed the major motion picture Big Stone Gap in her Virginia hometown. She will talk about her newest novel, Kiss Carlo, and a cookbook that celebrates her Italian heritage: Cooking with My Sisters. Guest Host : Benjamin Busch
Originally published in 2005, Trigiani’s Cooking with My Sisters: One Hundred Years of Family Recipes has just been released in a brand new edition. A collaboration with her sister Mary Yolanda Trigiani, the book delightfully blends more than 80 family recipes, some over 150 years old, with incredible family anecdotes from Grandmas Lucy Bonicelli and Viola Trigiani (who was known to write her recipes in code). Beginning and expert cooks alike will delight in whipping up Happy IBM (Italian-by-Marriage) Husband Salad—or, perhaps the Tipsy Lady from Flicksville’s Ice Box Cake better suits the occasion.
