I am in love with Mamma Agata. I have never been to her cooking school on the Amalfi Coast, never met her, have yet to try the amazing recipes in this new book, but her warmth and passion shines through on every page. I want to make every recipe, and somehow I know this is possible because Mamma Agata says so.
Every recipe is simple, yet elegant in its own way with the freshest of ingredients. Mamma’s recipes are traditional such as pizza, gnocchi, meatballs, pasta, fish, and lots of dishes with lemons – my favorite! When my daughter Kristina visited the Amalfi Coast (twice) she said the whole area has the fragrant air of lemons. I can’t imagine such bliss! Mamma’s recipe for lemon cake, “Dolce al Limone,” is the first one I am going to try. It looks so amazing, that I think I could eat the photo.
