Wentworth by the Sea:
The Life and Times of a Grand Hotel

by J. Dennis Robinson

Readers’ Comments

“There’s no question of the authenticity of Mary Ann Esposito’s Italian recipes, but of all the Italian-American food writers, I think she possesses the most authentic Italian soul.”

—John Mariani, author of The Dictionary of Italian Food and Drink, and How Italian Food Conquered the World

“In Ciao Italia, her very personal gastronomic journey, Mary Ann reveals to us the extraordinary diversity and complexity of Italian cuisine and the importance of traditions, ingredients and regional cooking. Full of useful information and historical references, her lively story is told with the right touch of flair and confidence and reveals the soul of Italy.”

—Jacques Pépin, chef and author

“Once again Mary Ann Esposito shows the world why you don’t have to be Italian to eat like one, as well as being able to discover some of the wonderful culinary traditions of this special country.”

—Joe Mantegna, actor

“What a treasure—and what a delight to find Mary Ann Esposito’s new collection of recipes, based on her travels up, down and around the Italian peninsula. Her multitude of fans are certain to cherish this book.”

—Nancy Harmon Jenkins, author of many books about Mediterranean cuisine, coauthor with daughter Sara Jenkins of The Four Seasons of Pasta
