"One bite of Elisa's Scripelle Mbusse and I felt like I was back standing in my great grandmother's kitchen. These are the kind of meals that chefs live for, the recipes and flavors that first awakened their love of food. You follow these recipes to create more than a meal, you follow them to recreate memories through flavor. She is a master of old world Italian cuisine, and this is the type of cookbook that never leaves my kitchen." - Chef Michael Favacchia, Marly's of Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, winner of the Best of Main Line Award.

The grandmothers reinforced what I already knew: simple cooking requires extra-ordinarly good ingredients, and that usually means local.
