First issued in 1948, when soulless minute steaks and quick casseroles were becoming the norm, The Unprejudiced Palate inspired a seismic culinary shift in how America eats. Written by a food-loving immigrant from Tuscany, this memoir-cum-cookbook articulates the Italian American vision of the good life: a backyard garden, a well-cooked meal shared with family and friends, and a passion for ingredients and cooking that nourish the body and the soul.

Written by a Tuscan turned Seattle-ite, this 60 year old memoir/cookbook/gardening book is still relevant today and a delight to read. If you liked Under the Tuscan Sun or Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, you’ll probably like The Unprejudiced Palate. Ideal for slow-foodies and locavores.
