Synopsis: SICILIAN FEASTS was born out of the authorís love for her native Sicily. She shares the history, customs, and folklore, as well as the flavorful and varied cuisine of her beautiful Mediterranean island in recipes, stories, and anecdotes.

SICILIAN FEASTS offers more than 160 recipes, along with menus for holidays, notes on ingredients, list of suppliers, an introduction to the Sicilian language, and a glossary of food terms in Sicilian, Italian, and English. Illustrations demonstrate special techniques.

Giovanna Bellia La Marca uses simple methods and readily available ingredients to teach the straightforward and delectable everyday cooking of Sicily, thus allowing even novices to create feasts in their kitchens. She features examples of elaborate dishes created by the monzuí, a class of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century professional cooks. These dishes are now effortlessly recreated with modern appliances. The astonishing íMpanata, a lamb pie from Ragusa, is sure to please oneís most exacting guests. La Marca also introduces her readers to the practice of transforming almond paste into beautiful and realistic marzipan fruits, a traditional Sicilian art form.

About the Author: GIOVANNA BELLIA LA MARCA was born in Ragusa, Sicily. She came to the United States at the age of 10, and has since then kept alive her love of the island with frequent trips there. Now a retired art and Italian teacher, she devotes herself to writing, cooking, entertaining, traveling with her husband, and enjoying her grandchildren in Cliffside Park, New Jersey.
