There, on the island of Ischia, she meets M., an aesthetics professor from Paris with an oversized love of life. What they both assume will be a casual vacation tryst turns into a passionate, transatlantic love affair, as they rendezvous in London, Marrakech, Milan, the Aeolian Islands, and San Francisco. Each encounter is a delirious immersion into place (sumptuous food and wine, dazzling scenery, lush gardens, and vibrant streetscapes) and into each other. And with each experience, Laura brings home not only a lasting sense of pleasure, but a more fully recovered sense of her emotional and sexual self. Written with an observant eye, an open mind, and a delightful sense of humor, An Italian Affair has the irresistible honesty of a story told from and about the heart. From the Trade Paperback edition

My organic life : how a pioneering chef helped shape the way we eat today by Nora Pouillon( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A wonderfully engaging memoir from the woman who founded Restaurant Nora, America's first certified organic restaurant--the natural foods pioneer who, earlier than anyone else, made it her mission to bring organic foods to the American table. The current proliferation of organic food and farm-to-table cuisine owes its existence to this mostly unheralded, groundbreaking woman who changed the way we eat as few others have. Growing up on a farm in the Alps, she was surrounded by fresh food--delicious produce and meats that had never been touched by artificial pesticides or hormones. When she and her husband moved to the United States in the 1960s, she was horrified to discover a food culture dominated by hormone-bloated meat and unseasonal vegetables. The distance between good, healthy produce and what even the top restaurants were serving was enormous. Determined to make a difference, first as a teacher and then as the country's premiere organic restaurateur, she charted a path that forever changed our relationship with what we eat. Spanning the last forty years of our culinary history, My Organic Life gives us the remarkable life of a little-known hero of the organic revolution"--

Celebrating her fortieth birthday, Laura Fraser confronts the trajectory of her life. Divorced and childless in her thirties, she found solace in the wanderlust that had always directed her heart, but now she wonders if her passion for travel (and for short-lived romantic rendezvous) has deprived her of what she secretly wants most: a husband, a family, a home. How to reconcile what seem to be two opposite desires: for adventure, great food, and new experiences, but also a place to call home--and a loving pair of arms to greet her there? So, she globe hops. What else is a travel writer to do? She enjoys new cultures and local delicacies, always on the lookout for the "one." But a terrible incident suddenly makes her aware of her vulnerability, and she becomes afraid of traveling. Might she lose her greatest pleasure, not to mention her career?--From publisher description

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Sardinian wedding feast, the search for the perfect seaside pasta with wild fennel, meeting a risotto master: Laura Fraser journeys from the SpaghettiOs of her American childhood to savor the best of Italian cuisine and the culture that cooked it up. Using the same dreamy, delicious type of prose that made An Italian Affair a best-selling memoir, these essays will delight readers who loved that book, and all who love Italian food and culture. Sumptuous descriptions of Italian meals and the passion that goes into them make this e-book a mouthwatering, uplifting pleasure. In "Italy in 17 Courses," Fraser uses the pace and order of the dishes in a wedding feast to muse on her own introduction to Italian food, and how it changed her from a diet-obsessed vegetarian to a pasta and pancetta connoisseur
