A city of love, food, music and passion - this is a novel for anyone who fell in love with LA DOLCE VITA.
It was Nicky Pellegrino's Italian father who gave his family a true passion for food. Now living in New Zealand working as a journalist, Nicky hordes her holidays so that she and her husband can return to Italy to see family, eat mozzarella and research her books.
I LOVED this book so much I could hardly wait to get to the
computer to type its praises. ... This book has inside-track
glamour in spades and all the colour of La Dolce Vita-period Rome.
... An original subject and beautifully handled. Brava Nicky. --
