From failure to fusilli, this deliciously hilarious read tells the story of Giulia Melucci's fizzled romances and the mouth-watering recipes she used to seduce her men, smooth over the lumps, and console herself when the relationships flamed out.
From an affectionate alcoholic, to the classic New York City commitment-phobe, to a hipster aged past his sell date, and not one, but two novelists with Peter Pan complexes, Giulia has cooked for them all. She suffers each disappointment with resolute cheer (after a few tears) and a bowl of pastina (recipe included) and has lived to tell the tale so that other women may go out, hopefully with greater success, and if that's not possible, at least have something good to eat.
Peppered throughout Giulia's delightful and often poignant remembrances are fond recollections of her mother's cooking, the recipes she learned from her, and many she invented on her own inspired by the men in her life. Readers will howl at Giulia's boyfriend-littered past and swoon over her irresistable culinary creations.

Giulia Melucci was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York where she still lives, but in a more fashionable neighborhood. She is the former Vice President of Public Relations for Harper's Magazine. She graduated from Sarah Lawrence College in 1988 and has been employed in publishing ever since, on the publicity side. Before joining Harpers in 2002 she worked at Spy Magazine, Atlantic Monthly Press, Viking, Dutton and Scribner.From AudioFile:
At once mouthwatering and heartbreaking, this book could not sport a more apt title--unless it could be SEX AND THE CITY COOKS. Melucci traverses the trials and tribulations of the New York City dating scene, describing a series of compelling, if somewhat cheerfully neurotic, relationships. Peppered throughout with foodie analogies, Melucci's delightful and poignant reminiscences embrace not only the loves of her life but also her past culinary inspirations. Read by the author, the romantic intrigues are all the more entertaining as they are sparked by Melucci's bold zeal and pithy humor. Listening to Melucci put her romances into perspective, one feels that only the author could imbue the reading with such wisdom, humor, and optimistic ardor for fine food and love.
