Author of the Italian cookbook, THE SPLENDID TABLE, Kasper also hosts a radio program about cooking. Her comfort with the spoken word is evident in this collection of essays and short pieces, which elaborate the recipes in her cookbook, THE ITALIAN COUNTRY TABLE. Between snatches of cheerful accordion music, Kasper entertains us with stories of cooking polenta, the resilience of perfect pasta, and the taste of fresh, sweet ricotta. She reads her stories with the exuberance of a gourmand just returned from an Italian trip-of-a-lifetime. The package includes a short Italian lesson, giving listeners no excuse to stay home. Altogether a delicious experience. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 02]
