The focus on family and culture, as well as the food, was seen as an important attribute of the book.

"My mother and I worked together. We made every one of the 81 recipes in the book. I did the measuring. She made sure we were doing things the right way. That way we got all the measurements, ingredients and the processes written down accurately for the cookbook."

The love of family, traditional Italian cooking and foods, and the willingness to share life's lessons and family traditions with others, have had a great impact on my earliest memories of helping my mother in the kitchen. This love is shared in the stories which accompany the recipes in this book.

The motif continues as family photos, tidbits of DeCaria lore and Italian sayings, such as "Una buona mamma vale cento maestre" -- a good mother is worth a hundred teachers--" are interspersed among the 81 fully-illustrated recipes contained in the book.
