In the James Beard award-winning book A Thousand Years Over A Hot Stove, Laura Schenone told the stories of American women, primarily through food and recipes. Her latest book is a more personal memoir, The Lost Ravioli Recipes of Hoboken A Search for Food and Family.
I haven't read the whole book yet, but I can tell you that in addition to the recipes and stories about ravioli there are also stories about family, cooking, mystery, romance, Italy, ghosts and much more...
Book Passage is hosting a dinner with Laura Schenone where you'll enjoy a feast of ravioli and other Ligurian specialities at Farina Focaccaia Restaurant.

Chef Paulo Laboa will demonstrate how to make ravioli in the Ligurian style and Laura will share stories and probably a few cooking tips. The menu sounds perfect for ravioli-lovers!
