By Mary Taylor Simeti, Maria Grammatico

On the age of 11, the daughter of a Sicilian sharecropper, Maria Grammatico, entered the San Carlo Institute within the mountaintop city of Erice, an orphanage run through nuns who have been recognized all through Sicily for his or her almond pastries, yet who have been much less adept at facing younger women. After ten years of labor and vicious self-discipline, Maria emerged with the secrets and techniques of the nuns' pastries hidden within her head.

This is the tale of her carefree nation childhood—her Dickensian lifestyles within the orphanage without warmth, no working water, and purely wood-burning ovens—and her triumphs as an entrepreneur and a world-famous pastry chef.

Bitter Almonds contains forty six of the recipes that she 'stole' from the nuns, devoted to writing for the 1st time in those pages.
