My mouth was watering all the way through this book. I am happy to say she included some recipes in the final chapter.

I especially enjoyed her tour of Italy and how the area she was in inspired her cooking.

Often I have heard how difficult and risky it is to open a restaurant. She did FIVE! And won James Beard awards to boot.
