What Readers Are Saying
I loved this book. I grew up in a town that was a little United Nations of nationalities. The majority were Italian and some of my best friends and even married some family. Living in different parts of the country I find the food is just not the same even when they say they are from the same providences. I greatly miss the Pork Stores with its sausages hanging from the ceilings. Cases full of cheese and open barrels sitting all over the stores. You will have to read to find out what a port store is. But you will not get that wonderful aroma as you open the door of cheese, sausage, spices and all the other wonderful ingredients.
Need a pick me up, enter a pork store. How could you be down with all that good smell swirling around. Making gravy was an all day event on Sunday. Saturday was for making the pasta. I had a neighbor that would allow me to help her on both days.
On Sunday all the family would show up at her house for dinner after Church. It was ironic because she was not Italian, her husband was. She was considered the best cook of the family and Sundays and holidays were at her house. Make some good memories for your family and friends. These are comfort foods for me.
