Cucina Paradiso is a wonderfully insightful and refreshingly personal exploration of one of the world�s most exciting cuisines--full of rich, colorful, and highly seasoned dishes unlike any other Italian food you know.  The book is also full of fascinating history.  Food is the prism through which Clifford Wright views Sicily and Sicilian culture.

"Grill Italian hooks the cook in the introduction. Who would not want to light the grill after reading the author's description of an alfresco dinner in Sicily ? The recipes are generally on the simple side, relying on the fresh ingredients and herbs for flavor rather than on heavy marinades and bastings. I love the frequent trick of alternating items on skewers with cubes of oil-soaked bread or that of sprinkling on bread crumbs to add texture ? Sausages, onions and oranges skewered together offer a delightful change of pace."
