Think of Boston’s North End and you will envision a place filled with great food. Italian markets filled with strings of thick sausage, great wheels of cheese, bushels of seafood, slabs of dark chocolate, and mounds of fresh fruits and vegetables line the streets. For generations, the cooks of this Italian-American neighborhood have transformed these wonderful ingredients into memorable meals.
For more than 30 years, Marguerite DiMino Buonopane, one of the North End’s most celebrated cooks, has shared her secrets to creating this culinary magic in your own kitchen. Now she gathers more than 275 of her own mouthwatering recipes peppered with savory color photos. The result is a full-color, deluxe edition of a treasured cookbook classic.
Marguerite DiMino Buonopane is a former restaurant chef-owner and host of the legendary luncheons at the old North End Union, a nonprofit community settlement house. For thirty years she also taught cooking classes in Boston's North End, where she has lived most of her life.
