Italy on a Plate

Author Susan Gravely, in celebration of VIETRI’s fortieth anniversary, shares her gratitude in this dual memoir and cookbook.

Italy On a Plate showcases over 50 recipes from the kitchens of Susan’s dearest Italian friends. Each recipe highlights the best dishes from regions all across Italy. Better yet, they are accompanied by Susan’s beloved and charming memories with each friend. In addition to family recipes and cheerful memories, Italy On a Plate provides glimpses into the Italian homes and gardens of Susan’s friends. Not only that, but the book also offers tips for how to entertain with effortlessly elegant Italian style. Finally, in the last chapters, we are given a look into Susan’s own home in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, along with their family traditions and holiday recipes. 

“Thanks to their kindness, hospitality, and generosity, my friends have shared the recipes found in this book. I hope these wonderful dishes, and the personal stories of our time together, will bring you the comfort and warmth they have brought me,” said Susan.
