Schiavelli evokes a foreign and often closed culture from a unique perspective: an outsider fluent in the language with still-strong familial ties. The recipes, which reflect the ancient influences of Greece, North Africa, and Spain, are simple, rustic, and delicious. Pumpkin caponata, ditali with drowned lettuce, fried ricotta omelet, potato gratin with bay leaves, almond love bites, veal shoulder roasted with marsala, and baked pasta with almonds are just a few of the dishes in this book. Schiavelli provides a comprehensive list of mail-order sources. If you want to visit Polizzi Generosa, there's a guide on how to get there, where to stay, and where to eat.
