Reviews

"This excel-lent volume proves that no matter how well-trodden the Italian cookbook path is, an expert with genuine curiosity and a well-developed voice can still find new material." - Publishers Weekly

"Every time I think I've seen it all, Katie Parla schools me and opens up an entirely new chapter of mind-blowing simplicity that I become obsessed with. This book proves to be no different. As I delve into these salacious recipes, I can only imagine where she will take me next!" --Marc Vetri, chef-founder Vetri Cucina "What do you want? A beautifully well-documented book that feels like visiting the soul of Italy, with pictures so good you can practically taste the authentic recipes? It's right here, friends. Transport yourself." --Joe Beddia, chef-owner Pizzeria Beddia "Katie Parla is without peer when it comes to cataloguing, eating, writing, and cooking about the foods of Italy. I'm biased. She's my friend and colleague, and for years she has shown me the Italy of my dreams, in her books and just hopping in the car and taking off on the autostrada. As Katie says, 'this is a calling, ' a duty for her to make sure these little culinary corners of her beloved Italy are revealed to us. But it's her passion, her gorgeously fun writing style, and these amazing recipes from the Italian South that become our gifts to receive. Intelligent and thorough, I sat salivating while paging through this book, longing to be back in the convertible, driving the Amalfi Coast in search of that next great meal. Food of the Italian South will win awards, become an instant classic, and thrill the critics, no doubt about it. The real gift is that we get to see this part of Italy through Katie's eye for detail, her luminous stories, and these amazing recipes." --Andrew Zimmern "I first met Katie Parla in Rome. I was a fan of Tasting Rome and was thrilled to be spending time with her there. It was then she told me about her upcoming book, Food of the Italian South. Katie has successfully gained my attention for her rich and transportive knowledge of not only Rome but now the southernmost parts of Italy. This book will take you to a place in Italy you may not want to leave and will open your eyes to the food and culture of the Italian South." --Melissa Rodriguez, executive chef Del Posto "Katie has unlocked the deliciousness of Italy's South. This book brings the cuisine of lesser-known regions in an incredibly diverse culinary country to your home. She provides entertaining insight to her personal heritage while honoring the area's culture and traditions. I can't wait to get in the kitchen and start cooking this book!" --Sarah Grueneberg, chef-partner Monteverde Restaurant & Pastificio
"Food of the Italian South is a rich, personal, and irresistible collection of undiscovered recipes and stories of regional cooking passed down from generation to generation." --
Evan Funke, chef-owner Felix


"Katie Parla, or how I refer to her, 'my Italian Goddess from Jersey, ' has taught me so much about food, life, friendship, and the importance of Danzig over the last few years. She has single-handedly and lovingly organized all of my culinary trips to Italy and Sicily, including our last trip to Puglia, the mysterious southern heel. I have personally woven a custom Koozie for this incredible book, which I carry close to my heart as a guide for the Italian South." --Eric Wareheim
