My second cookbook

I feel like I've been keeping a secret for way too long, but it's finally time to share with you the work that I've been doing for the past year and a half.  I can’t believe it, after all the testing and retesting, and driving all over Southern Italy to discover and perfect dessert recipes, the hard work is coming to fruition -- I'm proud to announce that my second cookbook is done!

“Southern Italian Desserts” will be released by Ten Speed Press on October 8, 2013.  It's already available for pre-order online through the links listed below:

In this book I share 75 desserts and master recipes from Sicily, Campania, Puglia, Basilicata and, of course, Calabria.  The recipes range from simple home desserts, to the cutting-edge creations of Southern Italy’s finest restaurants and pastry shops.  You’ll discover regional specialties here that are virtually unknown in America.  You’ll also find treats that are already well-known and loved by all, such as gelato, cannoli and biscotti.  I think these desserts are so comforting and familiar, yet new and exciting.  I know you’ll love them too!
