DID YOU KNOW that Zabaglione was traditionally served to newlyweds as an aphrodisiac? And that Linguine Puttanesca was invented by prostitutes of Naples to lure customers?

BE SEDUCED by these and hundreds of other famous Italian recipes in your own kitchen--or at the famous Italian restaurants throughout the world that have contributed both traditional dishes and exotic variations to this unique collection.

“My wife and I really enjoy From Italians of All Nations with Love. It's rare to find a cookbook with so many good recipes; they have joined our favorites, prepared over and over.”
- John Dawson

“In 1886 at age 21, my grandfather, Michel Carangelo, left his home in Naples to seek the American Dream. From his pushcart on the streets of New York City, he devised a street vending enterprise of selling roasted chestnuts and "spedini de carne" which dates back to Roman Times (or "meat on a stick" - similar to shishkabobs that were introduced later) which they called "Spiedini" or "Spiedi" for short. Many years later a local newspaper acclaimed this Italian immigrant "The First Street Vendor in New York City," but, over time, restaurateurs and major grocery chains have claimed the "Spiedi" as their own.”
-Bob Carangelo

“With disappearing Italian neighborhoods, authentic Italian pastry bakeries, real New York pizzas, and some of the restaurants in this cookbook, From Italians of All Nations with Love is a valuable gift of Italian heritage for future generations.”
-Marie Negri
