I decided to write this book to honor four women dear to my heart: my great grandmother Doralice, my paternal grandmother Alda, my maternal grandmother Adelaide and my mother Gabriella. It is a short, real story of their lives to which I added a few of their recipes and some original, meaningful photos. I use these recipes in my daily cooking as well as in my cooking classes, to keep them alive in my memory and in my kitchen. It is a collection of stories of women who looked for beauty in different fields; indeed, beauty is the common denominator of this book. A combination of beauty and food whereas food and meals around a pretty table are not a mere gesture, but an act of love. I included 50 recipes I developed in the past years and also a few photos of my table settings to convey a meaningful, yet really simple message: we should never wait for a special occasion to make our table and our day beautiful.
