Il Libro della Settimana presents a new book from La Biblioteca’s collection every week.
In honor of St. Valentine’s Day, we present to you this gem: In Cucina con Amore by Sophia Loren. Published in 1971, this collection of recipes includes Loren’s commentary on classics ranging from bucatini alla matriciana to zeppoles. It’s worth noting that the recipes are written in dense paragraphs, which may be challenging for some cooks to follow. However, the photos of Loren surrounded by food and cookery make this book well worth checking out. The call number in La Biblioteca is 641 LOR.
