From the Author

From the author: My selection of recipes for this book carry with them the love and dedication that I put into each and every page of the book. The book was designed to become an integral part of your routine. The recipes should guide you through the ebb and flow of your life. The book chapters are as follows: Il Battesimo: During the Baptism I used simple and easy recipes. If you have just had a child and have been preparing for the Christening you certainly don’t want to take things to the next level of difficulty. Easy to prepare, these recipes direct you to the next stage of your life. Primi Passi: Living everyday is a blessing. There is a balance of life given to you by God. Have you thought about the fact that there is always something you cannot control? During the day that lies before you, absolutely anything may happen. Knowing this, as your day unfolds you should have the same approach when you make your pasta. Whether you are making gnocchi or anything else for that matter, keep in mind that no quantity or measurement will ever be perfect. It is up to the day that God has given you to tell you how much water there is in the air. It is up to you to perform better each day and understand that it is for a reason that you are here. And once you learn to cook with the feeling and the necessity of giving, you will then have tapped into one of the most pleasurable things in life. Feste: The Festivals are also part of one’s growth in life. You will always remember Christmas, or maybe you will find yourself asking the question: why did anyone had to tell me that Babbo Natale does not exist! Signorina e Innamorata: For the next 2 chapters I thought that I should take you for a ride on a Vespa. When you are young, oh the days.... what were you cooking then? Our young generation is now made up of trendy and discerning eaters. You will find here easy ways to entertain. Here you are not making pasta from scratch. Time is the essence and just like Alice in Wonderland you have no time to spare.... You almost rebel from your old days, you want to break through to a new day, a new era, forgetting all the stages that you have left behind. But as you fall in love you soon realise that is the comfort of family that will make that man turn up day after day on your door step. And the recipe from your old auntie that you no longer had time to cook comes back into your life once again. So be prepared to catch your fish. Here we have recipes to catch that loved one and keep them forever and ever. Matrimonio: Here it is the big day! So many superstitions to balance . Believe or not to believe, this is the question. There are endless recipes exchanged between the families. Thus is the best wedding gift of all, even if some relatives have hidden some of the most important ingredients. (Don’t worry – I have sorted this out – I have been spying on them for years.) La Suocera: But the best for last is here. From the age of 12, as your hormones change, so do your thoughts. You know you will get an extra person in your life. Oh, if you are going to have a big day, this present comes inside of the package wrapped up in colours, so you always wonder what would be in black and white. Your mother in law is here to stay and do not expect any miracles. After all you wanted an Italian boy – you have it with love, thanks. Be prepared to find your balance. Be prepared to discover what patience really is. So I have prepared you with style. You can make bread here that will take you 3 days to achieve the ending result. Some of the pastas are so challenging that you may be discovering yourself practicing the shapes on your recreational days. You know you were not ready for me to give you those recipes in the beginning of the book. You have to learn that life is bigger than us. And that is why we are all in this together. Enjoy life. We only have one even if we all have life insurance! Luciana
