Il Talismano della Felicità Italian Cookbook
An Italian household staple
Il Talismano della Felicità, The Talisman of Happiness, was published in the 1920s and, to this date, it is the place to go when you need a traditional Italian recipe. A revolutionary woman, Ada Boni, wrote one of the first Italian cookbooks for housewives. Hundreds of recipes are collected in over 1000 pages: from appetizers to soups, pasta, risotto, gnocchi, and pizza; from fish, meats, salads, and legumes to desserts.
Mamma Giuliana has the original first edition that she treasures and uses regularly. Benedetta and Valeria have the reissued version. Il Talismano della Felicità is only available in Italian.
