Vegetarian Italian: Traditions offers a variety of recipes that range from simple and rustic to nuanced and elegant. So take your senses on a journey of classic and ancient culinary delights as Roberta shares with you the precious offerings of her family and Italian culture.Author BiographyRoberta Roberti s passion for writing has been with her since elementary school, but her passion for food and cooking is a family trait.
