La Tavola: a collection of favorite Italian and Italian-inspired recipes - This self-published recipe/photo book was a labor of love. It took over a year to complete and contains over 80 pages, which include black & white and full page color photos. Many recipes have been passed down through the generations and are part of my family's holiday traditions. I hope some of these will become your family favorites as well and enjoyed for generations to come. http://www.blurb.com/b/5446197-la-tavola
