"Gass shows her deep appreciation for and knowledge of Italian cuisine in this deftly written guide to small bites that pack a powerful flavor punch." -Library Journal

Combining simplicity and creativity, at its best, Italian cuisine charms us through a combination of the highest-quality ingredients, simple recipes tied to the specialties of each region, and the experience of being at the table. 

In her second cookbook, Anna introduces the American audience to the complete range of spuntini, smaller bites enjoyed at in-between meal moments of the day, with recipes drawn from across the country. Also included is a chapter of delicacies from Italy's robust culture of street food.

Studded with gorgeous photography of finished dishes and Italian food markets, cafes, bars, and pasticcerie around Italy, this book will elevate your snacking game to the Italian ideal.
