Critique: The more I cook, the more I realize and discover how the food that we eat is much more than nourishment. It is culture; it is our story as human beings, and Massimo Montanari has made it his life's mission to make that connection. Here, in this informative, intelligible, and delightful book, Let the Meatballs Rest and Other Stories About Food and Culture, Massimo shares those very stories and the resounding message that food is culture, and culture is nourished by food. -- Lidia Bastianich, chef, cookbook author, television personality, and restaurateur Montanari's erudition is manifest throughout the book. He assiduously avoids both commonplaces and pedantry and provokes thought, thrilling anyone looking to understand on a profound level why we eat what we eat. Booklist ...delectable... -- Andrew F. Smith Times Literary Supplement a textured, surprising, and brightly astringent read. -- Ted Weesner, Jr. Boston Globe
