From failure to fusilli, this deliciously hilarious story of Giulia Melucci's fizzled romances and the mouth-watering recipes she used to seduce her men, smooth over the lumps, and console herself when the relationships flamed out. From an affectionate alcoholic, to the classic New York City commitment-phobe, to a hipster aged past his sell date, and not one, but two novelists with Peter Pan complexes, Giulia has cooked for them all. She suffers each disappointment with resolute cheer (after a few tears) and a bowl of pastina (recipe included) and has lived to tell the tale so that other women may go out, hopefully with greater success, and if that's not possible, at least have something good to eat.

Peppered throughout Giulia's delightful and often poignant remembrances are fond recollections of her mother's cooking, the recipes she learned from her, and many she invented on her own inspired by the men in her life. Listeners will howl at Giulia's boyfriend-littered past and swoon over her irresistible culinary creations.

    " What a fun book to read. Who hasn't loved and lost, but Giulia's take on how her food and cooking came in to play was fun to read. I can't wait to try out a few of the recipes she included. "

    " I love books (especially non-fiction) about cooking. I could have done without the drug references, but other than that, I liked this lady and her cooking. "

    " I read a lot of bad reviews about this book, so I wasn't sure what to expect. Having finished it, I think maybe you have to be Italian to understand, because I definitely do. "
