Italian Food by Elizabeth David - Penguin Book (1954)

This book, written by renowned writer Elizabeth David in early '50s, is an ode to Italy and - mostly - Sicily's food... this seminal book, illustrated by Renato Guttuso who painted the Vucciria market in Palermo (and made the book cover artwork), gave to a post-WWII Europe and namely England, a hinting of colors and happiness at table.

... and this book is as timeless as it can be today.

Worth reading and experimenting... in the kitchen, of course.

Yummi and... buon appetito!
