Recipes, lessons, and inspirations from an adventurous Jewish girl who lived in Italy and returned to California to transform her community into a bunch of confident cooks. Written by a former comedienne and high school history teacher who lived for 5 years in Italy and earned a graduate degree in Jewish Italian history, the author started a cooking school by the same name — Meal and a Spiel. This book uses humor and wisdom to teach intuitive cooking. It features unabashed memoir, essays on life and “classroom corners” that explain how and why recipes work so you can finally put the cookbook down. Think Amy Schumer meets the Dalai Lama meets Julia Child. (In addition, Meal and a Spiel features several Jewish Italian recipes with the history of this ancient and unique population explained.)
