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.

Clifford Wright is a versatile fellow. He won the James Beard Foundation’s top cookbook award a couple of years ago for his historical opus, “A Mediterranean Feast.” But he also wrote one of my favorite quick cookbooks, “Cucina Rapida.”  In his newest book [Real Stew], Wright calls upon his scholarly credentials and his practical side to produce a collection of classic stews from around the world. The introductory notes for each of the 300 stews reflect Wright’s knowledge of history and world cuisines. But the recipes themselves — from Nantucket Scallop Stew to French Cassoulet to Kenyan Chicken and Coconut Stew — are straightforward and appealing.
