From her Italian-American childhood through raising and feeding a growing family and cooking with her new husband, Ann Hood has long appreciated the power of a good meal. With her signature humor and tenderness, she shares her favorite recipes. She also shares tales of loss and starting from scratch, of family love and feasts with friends; and insight into how the perfect meal is one that tastes like home.
