Recipes, lessons, and inspirations from an adventurous Jewish girl who lived in Italy and returned to California to transform her community into a bunch of badass cooks.
*It features unabashed memoir, life lessons through food, and “classroom corners” that explain how and why recipes work, so you can put down the cookbook and finally learn to trust your instincts.
*Edited by a Hollywood comedy writer, because who else could edit Meal and a Spiel!
*"You’ll find both a chapter called Pasta That’s Better Than a Restaurant and one called I Can’t Believe It’s Not Pasta! because I’m a Californian who came of age in Italy, and I believe in tradition, indulgence, and balance over dieting. My No-Noodle Lasagna will rock your world."
