The mother-daughter team splits up, with Nancy off to the Miami Book Fair, billed as the greatest book fair in the U.S. She’ll be talking about her work on Saturday afternoon and demo-ing and answering questions on Sunday. More about this amazing series of events HERE.

That same weekend, Sara will be way out in the Pacific Northwest, playing in the kitchen of her great friend Cathy Whims of Nostrana, which incidentally has just celebrated its tenth anniversary. That’s nostrana.com or 1401 S. E. Morrison in The Other Portland.

And then it’s Thanksgiving, and do remember, amidst all the festivities, that no less an authority than Calvin Trillin has always asserted that the main course at the first Thanksgiving truly was pasta alla carbonara. You’ll find a recipe in The Four Seasons of Pasta!

What Mario Batali said about "The Four Seasons of Pasta: "The Jenkinses are a treasure of Italian cooking in America. They are bastions of all that is good: simplicity, freshness and harmony. This new collection strips the philosophy to its most basic elements: dressing pasta based on what is fresh and what will settle your soul. I’ll be using it as a calendar." Chef Mario Batali

What Chef Alice Waters said about our book: “Every time Nancy writes a book it is an inspiration, because she goes into each subject with such enthusiasm and depth. And Sara is a wonderfully talented and intuitive chef. It is no surprise, then, Nancy and Sara have together created a beautifully approachable book that captures the vibrancy, traditions and remarkable versatility of pasta.”  Chef Alice Waters
