From Adriana Trigiani, the beloved New York Times bestselling author of All the Stars in the Heavens and The Shoemaker’s Wife, comes this gorgeous family cookbook. Filled with dozens of recipes, many of which are inspired by the sisters’ Italian-American roots, this beautiful book goes beyond cooking instructions and food photography to reveal the stories behind treasured family recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation.

Cooking has always been at the heart of the Trigiani family and has often marked memorable milestones from weddings to births to holidays and other special occasions. In Cooking with My Sisters, each of the Trigiani sisters’ recipes is accompanied by hilarious family anecdotes, gorgeous photographs-including photos of the original, hand-written recipes-and the history of the recipe within the Trigiani family tree.

Readers are introduced to a few of the women in the Trigiani family whose culinary wisdom still lives on today in the recipes featured in this book. From Grandmom Yolanda Trigiani who was known to write her recipes in code and often worked from memory to ensure her recipes were carefully guarded to Grandma Lucia Bonicelli, a soft spoken woman who believed that when people fought at the dinner table, the food turned to poison in the body, we learn what made these women tick in the kitchen and how invaluable they were to their family and to the generations that followed.

For new and seasoned cooks alike, Cooking with My Sisters features easy-to-follow, mouthwatering recipes such as Chicken and Polenta to Zizi Mary’s Chicken and Rice Soup as well as tempting desserts like the Perin Family Buttermilk Cake. Just like with any Adriana Trigiani book, the writing is warm, engaging, and wonderful, enticing readers not only with delectable, memorable dishes, but also with her vivacious, warm personality and humor.
