Dear Alfonso: Stories of Food and Family

By (author) Mary Contini

Following the successful publication of Dear Francesca and Dear Olivia, bestselling author, Mary Contini picks up the thread of her family story from 1934 in Pozzuoli, Naples, following the commercial success of the family business – Edinburgh’s acclaimed Valvona & Crolla – and the Dolce Vita of parent’s generation. With her inimitable style she shares stories of exuberant family relationships, mouth-watering food and hilarious laughter, painting a vivid picture of life in wartime Italy and Scotland and the decades immediately after.
