I was scared and imagining the worst—a wreck, Ashlee or Floyd hurt, or worse. I could only understand about every third word Ashlee was saying. She was crying and obviously semi-hysterical, and all I could gather was something horrific had happened on the interstate. And, as usual in our household, it somehow involved Shoes! Recipes and Stories Inspired by Shoes! denotes the fashion fantasy that affects our lives on a daily basis and the traumas such a trivial mainstay can help us survive. As our family developed and grew, we lived through such horrendous moments in time as the Oklahoma City Bombing and the May 3rd Tornadoes. These two events not only tested my theory that feeling like you look good can nearly predestine your day, but they temporarily removed all caring about personal appearance and put me in touch with more important issues. However, as time passed, I once again began to live life's daily passages, taking them for granted as we all do, and again enjoyed the frivolous hobby of shopping, buying and wearing classy to outrageous Shoes!

This collection of recipes and stories from Chef Boyardee’s granddaughter is “part cookbook, part family history, and part homage to her ancestors—immigrants who made their way in a new country” (NPR). The Boiardi name has reached tables across America for more than seventy years. Most Americans have fond memories of this iconic brand, evoking nostalgia for a simpler time. From a very young age, Anna Boiardi spent countless hours helping her mother and grandmother, kneading and folding, and listening to stories as rich as the tortellini she and her mother would work to perfection. Now, for the first time, Anna brings us the authentic recipes that inspired the brand, including Ravioli with Ricotta and Squash Filling, Cotechino with Lentils, and Baked Fennel with Butter and Parmesan. Recipes for sauces, meats, and of course pasta dishes are just some of the secrets Anna shares in Delicious Memories. “This loving paean to home-style Italian cooking and the culinary traditions of a family dynasty rooted in food offers just the right balance of nostalgia and appetizing recipes.”—Publishers Weekly “If you’ve never been excited by Chef Boyardee’s spaghetti and ravioli dinners, fear not-there’s much more to the Boiardi family’s recipes than what you've seen in the supermarket.” —Library Journal

Ranging from the imperial palaces of ancient China and the bakeries of fourteenth-century Genoa and Naples all the way to the restaurant kitchens of today, Pasta tells a story that will forever change the way you look at your next plate of vermicelli. Pasta has become a ubiquitous food, present in regional diets around the world and available in a host of shapes, sizes, textures, and tastes. Yet, although it has become a mass-produced commodity, it remains uniquely adaptable to innumerable recipes and individual creativity. Pasta: The Story of a Universal Food shows that this enormously popular food has resulted from of a lengthy process of cultural construction and widely diverse knowledge, skills, and techniques. Many myths are intertwined with the history of pasta, particularly the idea that Marco Polo brought pasta back from China and introduced it to Europe. That story, concocted in the early twentieth century by the trade magazine Macaroni Journal, is just one of many fictions umasked here. The true homelands of pasta have been China and Italy. Each gave rise to different but complementary culinary traditions that have spread throughout the world. From China has come pasta made with soft wheat flour, often served in broth with fresh vegetables, finely sliced meat, or chunks of fish or shellfish. Pastasciutta, the Italian style of pasta, is generally made with durum wheat semolina and presented in thick, tomato-based sauces. The history of these traditions, told here in fascinating detail, is interwoven with the legacies of expanding and contracting empires, the growth of mercantilist guilds and mass industrialization, and the rise of food as an art form. Whether you are interested in the origins of lasagna, the strange genesis of the Chinese pasta bing or the mystique of the most magnificent pasta of all, the timballo, this is the book for you. So dig in!

Change the way you think about lasagna with a cookbook featuring 50 recipes that are bold, creative, and always comforting “What could possibly be better than a great lasagna recipe? A whole slew of them, plus some wonderful baked pastas too.”—Ruth Reichl Whether you’re craving a meatball lasagna, keeping it stupid simple with a slow cooker spinach lasagna, or hosting brunch with an eggy carbonara lasagna that shouts “Hello!” from the center of the table, you’ll find plenty of new ways to cook the classic dish in Lasagna: A Baked Pasta Cookbook. In addition to a lasagna recipe for every occasion, the book features many creative ideas for what to eat with it, including the perfect iceberg lettuce salad you’ve ordered a million times in Italian restaurants, pillowy garlic knots, and a tiramisu for the twenty-first century. A baked pasta chapter delivers non-lasagna showstoppers, like skillet-baked spaghetti and timpano. With 50 recipes, mouth-watering photography, and plenty of tips, Lasagna is a detailed and delicious celebration of a baked pasta icon. Advance praise for Lasagna “An exuberant love letter to the bubbling, bronzed, bricklike comfort of lasagna. I foresee 200 percent more lasagna in my kitchen this fall, just as Anna Hezel and the editors of TASTE wanted for me.”—Deb Perelman, Smitten Kitchen “Garfield’s love of lasagna is well-documented. In his opinion, it’s nature’s perfect food. I’m often asked, ‘Why lasagna?’ Truth is, lasagna is my favorite food. So, it looks like Garfield and I will be fighting over this delightful book.”—Jim Davis, creator of Garfield “The sad truth is that lasagna—a dish of such great potential—is too often sloughed together haphazardly, a multithousand-calorie doorstop for the potluck table. Anna Hezel and the team from TASTE have, thankfully, reconsidered Garfield’s favorite food and laid out, in friendly and encouraging words and pictures, simple and essential ways to elevate your lasagna game. Plus they’ve mapped out a great range of baked pastas and the lasagna-adjacent dishes of the world, so you can set sail from red sauce seas to faraway horizons, discovering variations of baked noodle bliss you may have never known were within your reach.”—Peter Meehan, food editor of the Los Angeles Times and cofounder of Lucky Peach
