More than 100 recipes for the Italian dishes of the
much-beloved celeb’s childhood, presented with tips and
hints for enjoying them without overindulging.As
a member of a large, food-loving Italian family, Valerie
Bertinelli has always equated food with good times and
togetherness. But at one point her love of food threatened
not only her health, but her livelihood as an actress, when
personal demons drove her to overeat and make poor food
choices that caused her weight to balloon by 50 pounds. Now
happily svelte, remarried, and riding a new career high,
Valerie has made peace with food, giving it a central—yet
considered—place in her home and family celebrations.
One Dish at a Time offers an intimate
look into the beloved actress’s kitchen, where she prepares
a collection of treasured recipes from her Italian heritage.
Along the way, she shares her insights into the portion
control and mindful indulgence she has come to practice on
her journey to enjoying the pleasures of the table again.
Filled with gorgeous photos including the
actress in her kitchen, nutrition information accompanying
each recipe, and Valerie’s tips for maintaining a healthy
lifestyle, One Dish at a Time is designed to please
baby boomer fans and home cooks alike.
