Her immigrant story transcends ethnicity and speaks to descendents of all whose ancestors shared the same story of bravery, sacrifice and love. Marfisi begins with a book of poetry, each powerfully connecting us all to our roots in a way that only she can. Next, an historic view of the unique Sicilian cuisine is complete with recipes for dishes that evolved from the culinary contributions of the island’s many invaders. Finally, find traditional feast days of Italians and Italian-Americans and the special dolci (sweets) recipes synonymous with those celebrations. Try pignolate this Christmas. It’s all wrapped in a red leather, gold embossed cover, sprinkled with 70 classic and universal photographs that capture our roots, 147 treasured recipes handed down through generations of Hill families, and Italian proverbs and quotes to entertain throughout. In poetry and prose, Marfisi’s books capture the depth of Italian American culture by sharing their stories, their dreams, and something that brought them all together: their recipes.
