About the Author - Maria Filice
Maria Filice, a first-time author, food stylist & food blogger, is a first-generation Canadian-American Italian. Born & raised by immigrant parents from Calabria, Maria grew up following her family's old-country, old-school values. She learned from the best; her mother, grandmother, and aunts, whom she watched from the time she could barely walk. Filice traveled many times to L'Aquila, the hometown of her late husband, Paul Piccone. READ MORE
About the Book
49 colourful and easy to prepare recipes, many inspired by the restaurant San Biagio in the center of L'Aquila, where the author was able to taste the traditional cuisine of L'Aquila and be consistently impressed by the freshness, purity and the incredible flavour of the regional produce. This delightful book provides not only a culinary guide organised into days of the week, but also an insight into the story of a personal journey through one of the most beautiful, uncorrupted and undiscovered of rural Italy's landscapes.
