Ciao Italia: My Lifelong Food Adventures in Italy was named Bronze medalist in the Specialty Cookbooks category of the 2019 Independent Publisher Book Awards.

Legions of loyal fans of Mary Ann Esposito’s groundbreaking PBS cooking show CIAO ITALIA have enjoyed cooking with and learning from this beloved television personality, a trailblazer who helped spark a billion dollar food media industry and paved the way for countless other television chefs.

Fans have three words to describe her cooking style: traditional, authentic and passionate. From creating and launching CIAO ITALIA in 1989 to authoring 12 cookbooks, Esposito has inspired a worldwide audience who want to know more about Italian food and culture.

“Another worthy volume in Esposito’s long and sage list of cookbook.” – Publishers Weekly

“Is there room on the shelves for another Italian cookbook? If Esposito’s phenomenal output (this is her thirteenth cookbook), her ongoing PBS Show (also called Ciao Italia), and her knowledge of the region alone don’t convince, then 160 new and familiar recipes will. – Booklist

“In short, if you’re a fan of Mary Ann Esposito, Italian cooking, or cookbooks in general, Ciao Italia: My Lifelong Food Adventures in Italy should be on your shelf. – Tastes of Italia

Ciao Italia effectively conveys tradition–but eschews the traditional whenever it might cause a barrier to entry for American audiences. Full of approachable recipes adapted for home cooks, the latest entry in the Ciao Italia series showcases Esposito’s gift for reducing things to their essence and translating them effectively for delicious results.” – Foreword Reviews

VERDICT :” With intriguing photos, Esposito shares her love of the food and culture of Italy. Can’t make it to Italy this year? This book is a great start.” —­Barbara Kundanis, Longmont P.L., CO
