Book Description

YouTube® sensation Clara Cannucciari shares her treasured recipes and commonsense wisdom in a heartwarming remembrance of the Great Depression

Clara Cannucciari is a 94 year-old internet sensation. Her YouTube® Great Depression Cooking videos have an army of devoted followers. In Clara's Kitchen, she gives readers words of wisdom to buck up America's spirits, recipes to keep the wolf from the door, and tells her story of growing up during the Great Depression with a tight-knit family and a "pull yourself up by your bootstraps" philosophy of living. In between recipes for pasta with peas, eggplant parmesan, chocolate covered biscotti, and other treats Clara gives readers practical advice on cooking nourishing meals for less. Using lessons she learned during the Great Depression, she writes, for instance, about how to conserve electricity when cooking and how you can stretch a pot of pasta with a handful of lentils. She reminisces about her youth and writes with love about her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Clara's Kitchen takes readers back to a simpler, if not more difficult time, and gives everyone what they need right now: hope for the future and a nice dish of warm pasta from everyone's favorite grandmother, Clara Cannuciari, a woman who knows what's really important in life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tough times don't last but tough people do! 27 May 2012
I recently discovered 94 year old Clara on Youtube as I trawled the web looking for ideas for low cost meals. I was immediately won over by her great personality,optimism,common sense and unfussy,real world, cooking skills and I bought this book online just a few minutes later.

This book is an education to present generations in so many ways and is a refreshing change from the glossy, psychologically crafted infomercials that are endlessly preaching how to lose weight and, at the same time have more of everything... or the celebrity TV cooks with their artistically arranged, nutritionally worthless dishes.

Apart from the obvious lesson of how to keep a family healthy while feeding them on delicious and simple combinations of pasta, potatoes, greens and tomatoes, we also learn a lot about the value of skills, education, resourcefulness, hard work and the real meaning of family values as well as getting some great insights into twentieth century history.

A fantastic book Clara!
Many thanks and long may you prosper.
