|Hi, I ordered this book on the Valvona & Crolla website (from England to France) and had great pleasure reading it and offering it to friends. Mary's ancestors are from Picinisco, and a lot of the families mentionned are also found in San Biagio.
Dear Olivia (Paperback)
Canongate Books Mary Contini 8.99 GBP
Mary's fascinating follow-up to Dear Francesca is now available in paperback. Mary Contini writes to her daughter Olivia to tell the story of her great-grandparents, the humble Italian shepherds who emigrated to Edinburgh and then helped to transform Britain's food culture. Sharing some of the recipes that they brought over, this is a mouth-watering memoir of family and food.
