I checked this book out because of the Almond Pine Nut Cookie recipe. My sister-in-law introduced me to this awesome cookies and they are truly mouth-watering. We made the Cioppino for a Christmas Eve gathering and I am making the Caponata tonight. I love the travelogue nature of the book, the lovely photographs, and the fact that many of the recipes recall my first mother-in-law's wonderful cooking. I would love to be able to cook like her, and this book makes it seem possible. There is a list of Italian American clubs in the back of the book and a list of Lidia's cooking show episodes. This book would make a perfect gift for someone who loves her TV show or who wants to learn more about Italian American cooking.
