"Full of rich analysis and insights, this first book-length scholarly study of Italian immigrant foodways in the United States offers an explanation for why and how food became so closely attached to the creation of Italian American ethnic identities. A convincing and significant contribution." --Donna Gabaccia, coeditor of American Dreaming, Global Realities: Rethinking U.S. Immigration History
