Cecilia Granata grew up cooking with her family in Italy. As a vegan, she learned to adapt her favorite recipes to be animal-free while retaining the flavor and feeling of true Italian home cooking. She shares her commitment to ethical and artful eating in this alphabetically-arranged volume with over 100 recipes, ranging from traditional favorites from across Italy to homemade liqueurs to aphrodisiacs —all "senza sofferenza" —without suffering. The recipes are lushly illustrated with Granata's food-inspired tattoo art.
What a surprise for me the book of Cecilia Granata! Lots of recipes, lots of chances to never get bored in the kitchen, to amaze our families, our friends, and everyone who shares the table with us, pets included.

This tasty little tome may not win the Good Housekeeping seal of approval; its witty and flashy illustrations may be too hip for most mamas! But it's clear Ms. Granata knows her way around a cutting board and a drawing board. A must for the most decorated gourmet!
