This is Carolyn Manieri McCoy's cookbook. It is like no other.
It captures her life, her loves, her family and her favorite foods, all told with recipes and stories collected over a lifetime of being a foodie and all-time great mom.
Included are 200 pages of recipes alongside hundreds of photographs of food, friends and family stretching back from modern day to the earliest post-Ellis Island era.
In addition to too many great recipes to mention here, the book provides a snapshot of a time when America was at her peak. It shines a light on a microcosm of the people that made this country the best in the world: the first and second-generation immigrants that were part of the wave of people that built this country into something special in the history of mankind.
Carolyn captures, for all of us to enjoy, a lifetime of great recipes and wonderful stories she deemed worth passing on to the world. It is in her own words and writing and as such, her legacy.
